Re: Checkout issue with "Can't open file .... ChangeLog.svn-base No such file or directory"

What command are you using to do the checkout?

Is it possible that someone, somehow managed to check in a .svn folder
into the Subversion repository?

The .svn is a special directory that Subversion creates to handle
tracking of changes when you work in Subversion. They get created
whenever you do a checkout. The tmp/text-base/ inside the .svn
directory is a copy of the checked out file. Subversion makes a copy
of the file on checkout, so when you do such commands as "svn status"
or "svn diff", Subversion doesn't have to go to the server to compare
the file with the version you checked out. It saves server bandwidth.
The file "ChangeLog.svn-base" is the checked out copy of a file called
ChangeLog.

Either you are checking out the files into a directory that is already
a Subversion working directory or someone managed to checkin
ChangeLog.svn-base into the repository.

So, let us know the Subversion client version you're working on, and
the command you're using for checking out.
