Note: this means that bin/EFA0003.elf is _scheduled_ for addition. It is not
yet added to the repository.

According to 'svn help copy':

  SRC and DST can each be either a working copy (WC) path or URL:
    WC -> URL: immediately commit a copy of WC to URL

Now, I'm slightly puzzled what exactly this means, in particular if changes in
the working copy are supposed to appear in the destination. If that is the
case, changes like adding files should appear there too, of course.

Seems like a bug to me, at least the description what the WC->URL copy does is

Now, as an immediate help, you could do two things:

1. First commit all pending changes and then use a URL->URL copy.
2. First make a URL->URL copy, then 'svn switch' your WC to the new location
and commit the changes there.
