Re: Merge command failed with "missing or not locked"

I just guessing here, without trying it in a dummy repository...

svn mkdir http://<repository>/src/trunk/Problem
<populate Problem folder>
<make changes in trunk>
svn mkdir http://<repository>/src/branches/oak
# Branch only the top level folders which I need:
svn copy http://<repository>/src/trunk/A
svn copy http://<repository>/src/trunk/B
svn copy http://<repository>/src/trunk/C
<make changes in branch/oak, merge back to trunk>
<repository is now at revision N>
<make changes in trunk>
cd oak
svn merge -r <N>:HEAD http://<repository>/src/trunk
