Subject Mirror sync problem
Date Fri, 18 Dec 2009 15:59:35 GMT

I've started to sync a mirror and received this error in return :

# svnsync sync --username user --password pass
Transmitting file data .svnsync: Server sent unexpected return value 
(500 Internal Server Error) in response to MKCOL request for 

I tried twice and the sync stopped each time at r1796 (to be exact, 
while transmitting data from r1796).

I veiwed the logs and saw that files (/conf, /db, /format, /hook, 
/locks, folders and files) have been commited. I asked the user and he 
said he made a mistake with Tortoise. He created a repo inside his 
working copy and comitted it, the exact procedure is obscure as it was 
in April 2009.  

The repository works fine actually, but svnsync refuses to sync.

How can I bypass this particular revision ?
I thought to definetly remove the revision, I did it for some reason on 
another repo, but I wished an expert advice : does a revision removal 
will create a problem with the svnsync tool ?
The previous repo I removed a revision from will be concerned also, and 
now that this problem appeared I'm afraid of the flexibility of the 
svnsync tool.

Thanks in advance,
