I recently got this somewhat cryptic error message when trying to merge something in Subversion. In the root directory of my working copy, I ran svn merge, something along the lines of:
svn merge -c 1234 http://svn.example.com/myproject/trunk ./
Only to get:
svn: 'http://subversion.tigris.org/xmlns/dav/md5-checksum' was not present on the resource
I had absolutely no idea what it was on about, and a fair bit of Googling turned up nothing. Then, just for fun, I tried going one level up from my working copy and trying again:
svn merge -c 1234 http://svn.example.com/myproject/trunk ./myworkingcopy/
And lo and behold – it worked. I haven’t the foggiest idea why, but it does. Any ideas anyone?
Using SVN v1.6.6
