Re: Commit failures when adding new directories/files

My environment ==>>

Subversion 1.5.3 client / . 1.5.3 Server [ shared storage on netapps]. OS Linux 2.6.20-21_fc5.fbk29.

Using "svn+ssh".

And yes - I will try with a fresh workspace.

Curious about your comment on "file:///" protocol [ even though we don't use it here ] - what is the problem with that?

You didn't say what version of Subversion, what OS or what repository
access method you're using, so all I can suggest is make sure your
Subversion and your OS are up to date (current version of Subversion
is 1.5.6), don't use file:/// access method unless you are the only
person using this repository, and try checking out a new working copy
and doing it there; sometimes working copies get messed up.
