Subject RE: error when upgrading working copy
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 20:24:46 GMT
Yes! I removed the 'delete' before the deleted flag, leaving in the empty line preceding it,
and I was able to upgrade SVN to 1.7.6. Thanks for all your help!

That will be it.

"delete" means "delete this at the next commit".

"deleted" means "commit has deleted this" or "update has removed this".

I don't think it's valid for a node to have both set.

The delete/deleted combination is not supposed to occur, it's a 1.6 bug that it let you get
into that state.

You may be able to upgrade the rest of the working copy by editing the .svn/entries file that
has the delete/deleted entry. Remove the delete but make sure to leave the empty line.

$ svnadmin create repo
$ svn mkdir -mm file://`pwd`/repo/A
$ svn1.6 co file://`pwd`/repo wc
$ svn1.6 up -r0 wc/A
$ edit wc/.svn/entries          # add delete at line 34
$ svn1.7 upgrade wc
svn: E235000: In file '../src-1.7/subversion/libsvn_wc/entries.c' line 126: assertion failed
(entry->schedule == svn_wc_schedule_add || entry->schedule == svn_wc_schedule_normal)

It appears that 1.6 ignores the delete and gives deleted precedence:

$ svn1.6 st wc
$ svn1.6 info wc/A
wc/A:  (Not a versioned resource)
svn: A problem occurred; see other errors for details

I suppose 1.7 could do the same but upgrading corrupt working copies is not really practical
because we don't know what else is broken.
