Re: Help Recovering Directory

I tried using copy first because that is what the Version Control with
Subversion mentioned. But I did also try merging:
   $ svn merge -r 930:HEAD src
   Skipped missing target: 'edu'

edu in this case is the root of a source path (Java environment,
src/edu/isi/...), so I had no idea why it might be missing. So I did a
svn mkdir edu (and a few more directories in), but got the same "missing
target: 'edu'" message.
