RE: SVN 1.6.x - Merge using sparse checkout resulting in tree conflicts

Hi Stefan,

Thank you for you response. Yes, I would be advising our developers to revert such changes after examining them. But this seems to be a bug in the sense that tree conflicts are not differentiating the missing-due-to-sparse-checkout with missing-due-to-deletion.

And just to give a background, the reason we use sparse checkout is so that developers can save space and time by not checking out the projects they don't need. But need to merge from trunk from time to time to stay current.

Either merge into a non-sparse working copy, or if you are happy
with the directories missing in your merge result (caution, this is
unusual and most likely *not* what you want) just mark the conflict
as resolved.
