I stumbled over a strange svn problem today, while merging the xml2po branch into TRUNK:
svn: Working copy path 'ChangeLog.pre-2-4' does not exist in repository
I found two possible solutions in the net, but none of them seemed to work:
- “edit the “.svn/entries” file, and look for an incorrect revision=”0″ attribute, and set it to the correct value.” ( see http://www.axlrosen.net/stuff/svnproblem.html)
- “At this point, the only way I found to repair my working copy was to delete the directory containing the problematic file, check it out again […]” (see http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2006-03/0795.shtml)
I checked the ‘entries’ file, but couldn’t spot a ‘revision’ attribute at all. Solution two wouldn’t work, or I had to wipe out the whole gimp-help-2 module.
What I did now is to remove the files temporary (aprox. 10 files) and try again. I got the merge working afterwards. Although it is cumbersome, because you won’t spot the erroneus file in a dry run.
