Re: Can I have the same folder in twice?

Yes, I created the svnroot with my OS's mkdir command and then inside I
created private and pfndr and private also with my OS's mkdir command
and then I did a svnadmin create /data/svnroot/pfndr and svnadmin create
/data/svnroot/private. I am using a GUI to access the repositories. I
then, through that GUI, added the pfndr module and then the stuff in
private. In private though, I also have pfndr, that is where I get that
error. here's the local hier and the server's hier :

local :
The pfndr module :

The private module :

on the server :
The pfndr module :

The private module :

Only I have access to the private module, the pfndr and future
modules/projects are accessed by my teammates and myself, it is where
the acual developpment is done, the private is just my private files.

Thank you,
