Subject Re: Getting error E205009 upon doing SVN copy using URL
Date Wed, 09 Jun 2021 11:30:51 GMT
Hello,

My next guess would be that the -m paramter simply must be in the front.

In my scripts I use

$svn -m"tag erstellen" cp"$repository/branches/v$base_Branch/uls" "$repository/tags/released/v$tag/uls"

and that works fine.

Best regards,
Thorsten
