I am doing a merge of three branches into a trunk. The repository has
each branch and the trunk and each branch working copy has its branch plus
a copy of the trunk when that branch "sprouted". We have been using this
pattern with success for more than one year now.
After merging the revision interval from the branch repository copy into
the branch's trunk working copy I do an update from the repository trunk to
pickup changes made there by previous branches that have been merged into
their trunk working copy and then committed to the trunk repository copy.
It is at the update stage from the trunk repository copy to the second
branch's trunk working copy that I get the response:
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/nooksack/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: Working copy path 'lower/feq/master/feqin' does not exist in respository
The file, feqin, is one that has many changes and needs updating from the
trunk repository. The problem is that a check with a browser shows that
in fact the named path, "lower/feq/master/feqin' DOES exist in the trunk
respository. In fact it exists in all branches as well. This file, as well
as all others, is a text file. I have excluded binary files from the repository.
This problem happened when using a Windows client at 1.2.0 with a Linux
server at 1.1.4. Searching the list archives showed some past problems with
Windows clients. Thus I shifted to using all Linux. The error still occurs
at the same point in the series of operations with a client at 1.1.3 and
the server at 1.1.4. The server uses Apache and is on a LAN in my office.
I have exhausted my knowledge of Subversion and could not find this problem
in a search of the list archives. Many similar problems appeared but were
asserted to be fixed in 1.1.
The same error message appears when I do: svn status -u, Subversion
is unable to access the repository copy of the file feqin even though
a check with a browser shows that the file is present in the repository.
Thanks for any insight into how to get unstuck:)
