Merging and Sparse Checkouts

Stefan asked me to forward my problem to this list so ...


I'm trying to extract a "sparse checkout" working copy but none of my externals links are really considered on my working copy (I'm using a SVN 1.5.1 (32289) SERVER and a TortoiseSVN 1.5.3 (13783) CLIENT) :

Just tried this myself: you're right. But IMHO it should get the externals too.

Can you report this on the Subversion mailing list please?

Yes. See, the test merge doesn't actually do the merge, so it has to do a lot of guessing about the merge outcome, and that guessing is not always a 100% accurate.

checkout MyBranch with "immediate children, including folders".
Otherwise you won't get the externals.
