Subject RE: error when upgrading working copy
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 19:19:39 GMT
Philip and Daniel,

It appears to be failing in the Data Definitions subfolder. There were no 'deleted' flags
in the entries folder there, but there were several in the folders that were at the next level
down. I've pasted the entries with the deleted flag below, and the first one, DeviceSalesLastSevenDaysdir
caught my eye because it has both delete and deleted. These entries refer to folders at the
next level that were recently deleted, and I remember that, for this first one, I accidentally
deleted it irreversibly through the file system before deleting it from SVN, and I had to
do something funky to get it back to a point that I could check it in. The folder was empty,
and I tried to recover it through SVN, but that didn't work. I ended up creating a new folder
with the same name and deleting it through SVN, but it was tricky when committing. I hope
this is helpful to your evaluation process. I've attached the three entries folders that I've
examined for your reference and named them for the folder they resided in.

Development\Data Definitions\RIM.Data.Implementations\.svn\entries -

Development\Data Definitions\RIM.Data.Migrations\.svn\entries -

Thanks again for your help,

It would probably tell us which .svn/entries file to look at: the last one opened.
