Subject Sparse Checkout not working correctly?
Date Fri, 16 Feb 2018 19:50:36 GMT
In prior versions of SVN (last I checked that it worked was 1.7.x) I could do a sparse checkout
and things worked as expected.. for example:

Say I’m in a directory called code and do:
> svn co http://blabla/svn trunk --depth=empty 

I then see code/trunk

and if, while still in the code dir, I do
> svn st

I get a little message that says the code dir isn’t under version control.  Makes sense.
 I can then cd into trunk and continue to sparsely update particular directories from the
svn repo and all is well.

HOWEVER.  :)  Now, with 1.8 and 1.9, I’m seeing an issue.. 

Say I’m in my code dir and do
> svn co http://blabla/svn trunk --depth=empty 

Now if I do
> svn st
I see as the result:
A     .
?     trunk

And things get funky when trying to check stuff in.

I browsed your bug db and didn’t see any issues that looked like this, and I didn’t see
anything interesting come up doing a google search to see if others are experiencing this..
My svn server version is 1.8.10.  The client is running on Mac 10.13.3 and is version 1.9.7
   compiled Jan 12 2018, 19:11:29 on x86_64-apple-darwin17.3.0.

Let me know if there’s any more info I can provide!
