svn: E155023: Can't set properties on 'E:\SVN\WorkingCopies\repo\trunk\folder\file.txt': invalid status for updating properties.
The background is this:
The "file.txt" was recently deleted on a branch and the deletion has been committed. Now the work on that branch is ready and it's about to be merged back into trunk.
The branch release process:
In the log from the merge, before the error message mentioned above, everything looks fine, i.e. a bunch of lines for "Updated" files and one "Deleted" file (the "file.txt").
I searched among the bugs but the only one I could find somewhat releated was this quite recent one:
So I'm wondering what could be the issue, something we've done wrong or a bug? Is the problem in the SVN client or server?
(I used Tortoise/SVN 1.14.0 as client when merging. I think it's SVN 1.8.5 on the server)
