Hi Ben,

Thanks for the reply.

I get the above error for switch and for update (since they are essentially the
same command). AFAICT the switch is looking for the directory in the old
revision (r13) ... would that make sense? The strange thing is that svnlook
shows all the files in that directory for that revision, but the web tool
'WebSVN' shows the error

  'Path not found' - /2.0.0/www

for that revision.

My initial thoughts were that this might be a limitation in the client software
as described at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/apb.html#svn-ap-b-sect-1.2.16 . But then the
little test I did from the previous email made me wonder...

I have double checked that I'm issuing the correct switch command.



# svnlook -r13 tree website

# curl

Path not found - '/2.0.0/'
