Subject svn 1.7.4: svn up --depth immediates not working as expected.
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2012 16:59:06 GMT
Ive identified what i believe is a bug in svn 1.7. Ive used svn 1.6 extensively and never
remember observing this behaviour.

1. i have a full checkout of a repository.

2. i want to do an update of a folder but not the sub-folders. I use the commnand
svn up --depth immediates

3. what i see is contents of sub- folders updating.

I did NOT expect the above file to appear i.e. i expected on fils in the current folder to
appear or a new folder (but not its contents).

Can anyone
1. confirm that svn up --depth immediates should ONLY checkout new files at current level
2. that this does indeed look like a bug in svn 1.7

SVN Client 1.7.4
SVN Server 1.6.18

As an experiment i went back to svn 1.6 and an old working copy.
1. made a change to a file below the current folder.

2. svn up --depth immediates .
At revision 131253.

As i expected the updated file did not appear.

3. svn up .
U mcm_test/ReleaseNotes.txt
Updated to revision 131253.

As expected the file now appears.
