Re: svn commit is failing

I think the question is: what problem are you trying to solve here?

I'm not 100% sure what you were trying to do. But it seems that you
were trying to rollback a file to previous revision. If that's the
case, here's what I'd do:

When I rollback changes, I use 'svn merge'. It allows me rollback on
an individual file basis. Here's a sample command:

svn merge -r HEAD:2110 svn+ssh://host/repo/trunk/my_file.c

Assuming that 2110 isn't the latest revision in the repository, this
will rollback the working copy of 'my_file.c' to revision 2110.
You need to be in the working copy directory for this to work. And
you'll need to commit afterwards.

I hope this helps. If not, feel free to ignore me :-)
