RE: Merge problem after changing directory tree structure

Thank you! I understand this revision addressing syntax much better
now! Knowing that I can merge using this syntax, I feel *much* more
comfortable changing my repository structure while developing on a
branch.

The true, "fully expanded" form of diff and merge is:

   svn [diff|merge] URL1@X URL2@Y

This syntax allows you to compare any two directories anywhere in the
repository's history.

The form

   svn [diff|merge] -rX:Y URL

is just a shorthand for

   svn [diff|merge] URL@X URL@Y

So the first example works, because you're asking for a comparison of
two different paths in two different revisions. The second example
fails, because you're asking for a comparison of the *same* path in both
revisions, and the path doesn't exist in one of them.
