RE: Files added to repository by others don't come down with 'svn update'

For what it's worth, the FreeBSD ports for Subversion (i.e. the build harness and patches) are freely available via Subversion at the following URLs:

svn://svn0.us-east.freebsd.org/ports/head/devel/subversion
svn://svn0.us-east.freebsd.org/ports/head/devel/subversion16
svn://svn0.us-east.freebsd.org/ports/head/devel/subversion17

"Base deleted" is not the same as the file being deleted. It's been said before, but it'll happen if you update when a file was deleted in the repository, but modified in your working copy. This should result in a tree conflict.

I see here:
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/articles/committers-guide/subversion-primer.html

that FreeBSD uses (or perhaps suggests using) a variant of Subversion with FreeBSD-specific patches. The only reference I find to Subversion in this problem report is that there's "a Subversion problem of some sort." Hardly helpful

For starters, somebody can take the time to confirm that stock Subversion without FreeBSD-specific patches behaves the same way. Sorry if that sounds a bit untrustful, but frankly, I can't recall seeing the problem you report in any release version of Subversion, so I have my doubts.
