Re: Question: "cannot replace a directory from within" -- what happened?

have you got a solution until now?
I have the same problem too. I relocated with svn and with tsvn (on a
different machine) - it doesn't work.

The entry files in the top level .svn directory are the same from the
relocated and a newly checked out copy, especially the url - only the
dates differ.
