You do know that a Message-ID is not useful _in any way_ towards tracking that
message in the list archives, don't you? The attitude is also suprisingly

I'm guessing you mean this:


which I have to say /I/ find pretty clear. The appropriate response to the
first error should have been

        svn ls https://zewt.org/svn/vendor

to see that you had forgotten to commit foo. The first error message correctly
states the obvious (that the destination path doesn't exist).
