Re: how to access deleted file/directory?

Just to clarify, you did this:

$ svn copy https://svn/repros/foo/component-2/trunk
http://myserver/foo/tags/build-3

Then, sometime later you did this:

$ svn rm http://svn/repros/foo/component-2

And, now you want what was once under the directory
http://myserver/foo/component-2/tags/build-3?

Since you've cleaned out the leaves of the tree that contained your
build-3 tag, the only way you can get back to it is to refer back to
another transaction like you did. I personally would have done a "svn
copy" to a tag or branch directory instead of a "svn co" (at least at
first) just so I can find that point again. But, the "svn co" works
just as well.
