Hi Alex!

I can get a working copy in a state as you described by the following


dirk@deepthought:/tmp> svnadmin create foo-rep
dirk_at_deepthought:/tmp> svn mkdir file:///tmp/foo-rep/trunk

Committed revision 1.
dirk_at_deepthought:/tmp> svn co file:///tmp/foo-rep/trunk trunk
Checked out revision 1.
dirk@deepthought:/tmp> cd trunk/
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> svn mkdir a
A a
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> svn mkdir b
A b
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> svn ci -m "a b"
Adding a
Adding b

Committed revision 2.
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> mv a b
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> svn st
! a
? b/a
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> svn add b/a
svn: warning: 'b/a' is already under version control
dirk@deepthought:/tmp/trunk> svn rm b
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: 'b/a' is not under version control


The problem is using "mv" instead of "svn mv", so that "b/a" looks like an
directory under version control (because it contains a .svn subdir), but has
no entry in the .svn directory of "b". Is this similar to your build script?

You might get similar problems when composing your directory tree, that is to
be added, by cp'ing directories already under version control instead of "svn
cp"ing them.
