Subject AW: Assertion failed and crash with 1.7.1

If you have uncommitted property modifications, copies or moves in the working copy, a lossless
transition (or repair) of the WC to 1.7 should be possible in the following ways:

1) Preparation: Delete all .svn subdirectories in the working copy

2) create a separate checkout.

3) move or copy the .svn subdirectory of the new checkout into the top level directory of
the existing working copy.


1) Preparation: Delete all .svn subdirectories in the working copy

2) "svn checkout --force" in the existing working copy.

I'm not sure whether this will work fine with externals, however. :-)
