Copying commited WC

From: Nick Patavalis <npat_at_inaccessnetworks.com>

Trying to copy a WC that was just commited fails, complaining that the
checked-in files are not up to date.

Furthermore there seems to be no way, given a WC, to know if a
subsequent "cp" command will succeed or fail, without knowing if
commits were previously performed from the WC. As a result there seems
to be no easy way to write a script that copies a WC to a repo-path.


 1. svn co svn://server/repo/proj/trunk ./proj
 2. svn co svn://server/repo/proj/trunk ./proj1
 3. cd ./proj1
 4. vi foo.c
 5. svn -m "Modified foo.c" ci
 6. cd ../proj
 7. vi bar.c
 8. svn cp . svn://server/repo/proj/tags/tag1
 9. svn -m "Modified bar.c" ci
10. svn cp . svn://server/repo/proj/tags/tag2

Step (8) fails, complaining that the file "bar.c" is not up to date.
On the other hand (6) succeeds, regardless of the fact that "foo.c" is
obviously not up to date.

Can somebody suggest a formal way (e.g. script) that, given a working
copy, tests if a subsequent "cp" command will fail for the reason
shown above?

Thnaks in advance
