I hadn't exactly understood what you meant when you said the file was
missing. I was looking for a reproduction recipe demonstrating the
problem. I.e., are you talking about using "rm -f file" on a file
that was under Subversion control, or what? (I'm not familiar with
"svn-buildpackage" or "svn-upgrade".) Obviously Subversion should not
behave in a weird way, but we first need to be able to see the
problem before we can suggest a solution.

I'm glad you got it working.

There are hundreds of list subscribers; I'm not in a position to
remember who would like a copy and who would not. If you do not want
a copy, you may set the Reply-To header of your outgoing list mails
to the list's address. Then, only the list will receive the replies.
