That's easy to resolve.
Run "svn resolve --accept=working wc2/config", and
then unversion the file with "svn revert wc2/config".

As you can see from the "A +" status indication, the file is
automatically scheduled add-with-history to make it easy for
people to keep it. "svn revert" will undo the local add-with-history
and the file will now appear as unversioned.
