Subject Re: URL does not exist
Date Mon, 01 Mar 2010 13:48:25 GMT
When I commit, save, and exit:

svn: URL 'Directory Name' does not exist
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn:    'svn-commit.tmp'

trying %2520:

svn: URL 'Directory%20Name' does not exist
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn:    'svn-commit.2.tmp'

might not be "Directory Name" but might in fact be "Directory%20Name". I don't know how that
would have come to pass if you didn't mean for that to occur, but perhaps RapidSVN does not
properly handle items whose names contain spaces.
