Re: svn:REPORT request failed on '/svn/nooksack/!svn/vcc/default' message on svn update

Talked to our son who has used version control software and the problem
appears to be that the users of one branch deleted feqin and then created
it again from outside and added it to version control. Thus the path names
are the same but the ancestry differs. We suspect this is the cause of
the problem and fits the case since the detailed merge output does show
a D on feqin followed by an A on feqin on the following line. Consequently I
will restore my system to its initial state and then try the merge
operations on the problem branch with the --ignore-ancestry flag.
This appears to be the solution.

Should know by tomorrow if this solves the problem-too late to
try it tonight-need to be fresh enough to think clearly:)
