Subject Re: Getting error E205009 upon doing SVN copy using URL
Date Wed, 09 Jun 2021 12:27:22 GMT
Hello,

Now thats fairly funny, it seems like your aix shell doesn't treat 
quotes the same way other unix tools do?

Have you tried using single quotes instead of double quotes?

svn -m 'jira:RTPS-9898 EPC 2021 install'  copy <src> <dst>

Best regards,

Thorsten
