Re: Unable to check out project

Hi David,

FYI:

If you're using tortoise SVN which seems to the windows client of
choice - it has excellent documentation.
If you're using the command line you can use "svn help"

None the less: the error message is not saying anything about ".../
Source/tmp"
the tmp path is in the .svn folder/directory where SVN persists all of
it's metadata.

Maybe try "svn cleanup" (from the command line - or your GUI-tool
equivalent)

Other than that - someone a little more knowledgeable may be able to
help you more directly.

Gavin.
