I have never used cvs, so my advice may not exactly correspond.

Not necessarily. You might have made changes to different parts of the file, which subversion would have resolved for you, in a probably proper manner.

Ok, a conflict occurred, so you and he did modify similar-enough parts of the file that subversion could not automatically merge them. You would now usually resolve the conflict manually.


You usually do this by opening the file in an editor and picking the correct lines from amongst those subversion has indicated in the file for you. You can also make use of the three additional files subversion has created (one containing the old file, one containing the new upstream file, and one containing your version) to assist you in deciding what's right.

Ok, now you don't have the file at all.

This should indeed have brought back the current version of the file. Are you sure it did not?
