I'm kind of surprised that you got that error with the 'svn diff'
command -- I often don't see that until I try to actually commit.

Anyhow, revert changes to the skin files:

  'svn revert' build\site\skin\*

Problems with the skin files are documented at
http://db.apache.org/derby/papers/derby_web.html#odd_diffs .
And, huh!, I remember now that I meant to tell Windows users to 'svn
revert' those files. Current wording still leaves one with the
impression that they could be committed:

repository, and it's also harmless to svn revert them. And it's certainly confusing!
