Many thanks for your reply.

I'm still suffering the version collisions. I was going to join
tortoise svn users list, but I thought as I am already discussing here
I will ask you.

I've installed TortoiseSVN 1.7.7 (which uses svn 1.7.5) and it can't
access the checkout from Jenkins (which is supposed to be "1.7"
format). Actually Tortoise is offering to upgrade to "1.7". I am a bit
surprised as it is already a 1.7x release.

Upgrade working copy
This will upgrade your working copy to the new 1.7 format and make it
unusable for older clients

etc etc

[Upgrade the working copy to the new 1.7 format]
[Cancel keep the current format]

The workspace was successfuly acessed by cygwin client
svn, version 1.7.5 (r1336830)
   compiled Jun 27 2012, 15:27:52

I'm a bit confused why TortoiseSVN can't handle. I will probably go
back as a binary search to find a TortoiseSVN that works.. this is
such a high cost on users (already a large amount of money/development
time used up. I'd happy donate an amount of money to get a fixed .svn
standard format for the next decade..)

Thank you for any tips

Regards, Jon
