[ack... Must-hit-reply-all]

You're misunderstanding each other. Bryan is asking "what happens when
someone deletes a directory INSIDE a WC". Ben is answering the question
"what happens when someone deletes the directory that the root of the WC

If your WC represents http://host/svn/project/trunk/ and someone deletes
http://host/svn/project/trunk/subdir, then when you "svn up" wc/subdir will
get deleted. If someone deletes http://host/svn/project/trunk (or
http://host/svn/project/) then your WC now points to a directory that
doesn't exist. See Ben's answer below.

Huh? I don't understand what you want, or what you expect.

If person A has a working copy of a directory, and person B deletes that
directory in the repository, what do you think should happen when person
A runs "svn update"?

I see only two options:

  * 'svn up' blows away the entire working copy (because that what it
would do if some subdirectory had been deleted.)

  * 'svn up' prints an error saying that the WC reflects a
no-longer-existent path.

Right now we do the latter thing. Are you thinking of some 3rd option?

What do you mean by this? Are you talking about 'svn switch'?
