RE: Directory Modification Feature or a Bug?

Thanks for the reply.

Well I searched through the information that you suggested, but I still
don't see an answer.

Also saying the automatic update after commit of a modified directory (only
the directory without recursion) is a Bad Thing does not make much sense.
If it is a Bad Thing, than why would I be able to do it manually, and in
fact be required to do it manually in order to get my simple example to

All I am saying is that the commit command should do the update after the
commit, and if there are exceptional circumstances when you would not want
it, perhaps that could be disabled using a switch.

Maybe an example of why this is a Bad Thing to do it automatically, but not
a Bad Thing when doing it manually would be good.

See http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#wc-out-of-date

There you will find pointers to other, more in depth descriptions of
the reasons behind this behavior.

The short version is that it's supposed to work that way because
automatically updating on commit would be a Bad Thing (tm).
