The following steps lead to an "unexpected error" message from
- svn co http://repositoryname/trunk/ --depth=empty
- cd trunk
- mkdir NameOfDirectoryThatAlreadyExists
- svn add NameOfDirectoryThatAlreadyExists
- svn ci -m"Committing new directory"
This leads to the following error:
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Server sent unexpected return value (405 Method Not Allowed) in
When using the SVN protocol, the error message is "File already exists,"
