RE: svn: Working copy path 'X/Y/Z' does not exist in repository

FWIW - I'm using the model from here:


$ pwd



$ svn merge http://svn.example.com/repos/calc/trunk

--- Merging r345 through r356 into '.':

U button.c

U integer.c


But this simple merge fails with the 'does not exist in repository'


I am using the "first release" of SVN1.5 - 1.5.0.

Hi all,


I'm trying to do a normal svn merge on my branch (rebase to the trunk)
with SVN1.5 (not using -r) and keep getting Working copy path '' does
not exist in repository. I know that's not the case (the path does
exist in the repository) because I can go in my branch working copy and
do an svn info on it:


cd 2.3-prep/

svn info platform/kernel/mv5.0



svn log .

[root_at_scm37 kernel]# svn log . --stop-on-copy --verbose


r36673 | joe.bell | 2008-10-21 21:46:57 -0500 (Tue, 21 Oct 2008) | 7

Changed paths:

   A /product/branches/2.3-prep (from /product/trunk:36452)



[root_at_scm37 2.3-prep]# svn --version

svn, version 1.5.0 (r31699)

   compiled Jun 18 2008, 21:32:10


When I run this command with the -r option to specify the revision
slice, everything works hunky dory, it's only when I omit -r and expect
SVN to sort it out that I get this issue.


Let me know what other information I can provide. Even with 1.5 I still
have a hell of a time merging with SVN L
