Re: Issues with svn copy

So to summarize:
It seems that subversion will only create one folder level deeper than
what is already present.

I noticed something similar when creating a repository, the "book"
claimed that the path to the repository would be created, but really
only the last level would be created by svnadmin. I don't mean to
suggest that it is related to this issue, only that the behaviour was
similar.

The docs were confusing. In terms of general behavior, does subversion
create all intermediate parts of a destination path or must they be
present except for the last level specified?
