RE: 'switch --relocate' troubles

I have made this mistake myself. It seems the FROM parameter is obvious,
but the TO parameter is easily overlooked as a quick scan reads "FROM to
PATH". The help syntax is correct, just easily mis-read.

Perhaps change the help to be:
...
2. switch --relocate FROM_URL TO_URL [PATH...]

Your usage requires two URLs:

switch (sw): Update the working copy to a different URL.
usage: 1. switch URL [PATH]
       2. switch --relocate FROM TO [PATH...]

So you need to put in whatever the current URL of your working copy is
(use svn info if you don't have the exact URL).

As to the error about 'tools', I'm guessing that it's an error message
that has changed in different versions of SVN. In v1.1.1 and v1.1.2,
svn just quietly does nothing if I replicate your command.

I changed my repository from:

http://svn.serent.net/svn/oldproject/trunk

http://svn.serent.net/svn/newproject/trunk

But, I'm having trouble with the "switch --relocate". I get this:

$ svn switch --relocate http://svn.serent.net/svn/newproject/trunk
. # with a dot on the end.
svn: Working copy 'tools' not locked

I can't figure out what tools is. I don't have such a file or
directory in my current working image.
