After upgrading my svn client from 1.6 to 1.7 I encountered the following:
Suppose an svn repository has the following layout
(top directories a and b, a has a subdirectory b, top directory b
Now try the following steps:
1. checkout directory a recursively and locally apply an svn:externals
perform an svn update on a => test.txt gets loaded in versioned subdirectory b
2. now locally exclude subdirectory b from update (svn update b
Removed external 'b\test.txt': The node '<local path>\a\b\test.txt' is
---> Seems as if svn also still tries to remove the file external,
-> This error remains during further updates of a
Can this be considered a bug or is this intended behavior?
