RE: Subversion File Checkout Error

Dear Sunod,

This is what I found in the FAQ:

If want to checkout and modify that file you need to checkout the folder
it's located in. This is due to the fact that subversion organizes stuff
folder-wise. As far as I know there's a switch to do the check out
non-recursively, to avoid checking out subsequent folders.
