Subject Update fails to delete a line of code
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2012 18:38:34 GMT
I am not subscribed, so please be so kind as to CC me in your response.  Thanks.

Using relatively current versions of SubversionEdge and TortoiseSVN, I "committed" a file
(from which I had deleted a line of code in my local workspace).

Then I logged onto my app server and used TortoiseSVN and "updated" the same file.

I was surprised to see that, instead of replacing the file on the app server with the latest
revision, a merge was performed automatically.  Without asking me, the file on the app server
was merged with the version I had committed to the repository, and this merge resulted in
*no change* to the copy on the app server -- since the merge kept in place the line of code
I was trying to delete.

Obviously, this was not the desired result.  What should I do differently, so that committing
a file with a line deleted, and then updating the same file on a second machine, will result
in the file on the second machine reflecting the deletion?
