If you have problems when commiting, then please discuss
it with your friends.

Yes please. We connot afford to lose svn history.

If you continue to have trouble, then one of the other
committers will need to help.

There is always a way. Perhaps index.xml needs to be copied
and the others moved. Individually perhaps. It is trivial
to create a temporary shell script to do the individual
moves and copies. For example, use 'ls samples >'
and vi to edit it into a shell script which performs a
list of 'svn mv' or 'svn cp' commands.
