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

David,
I think your post solved the issue.
After re-reading your explanation, I decided to get rid of ChangeLog:
svn rm http://ajaygautam.homelinux.net/svn/peppercorn/phplist-2.10.8/ChangeLog

After that, the checkout works fine...

As it turns out, there was another file called "changelog" in the same
folder. Different cases, same name... I think thats what was screwing
up the contents in .svn

I restored ChangeLog as ChangeLog.txt, and checkout is working fine now.

Thanks for the pointers :) Very much appreciated.

Ajay
