Subject Feature request: Easy tree conflick resolve mechanism
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 08:27:15 GMT

In the old days the .svn folder was in every folder and resolving a tree 
conflict was as easy as deleting the conflicting folder and doing an 
update. This solved 90% of our issues.
This is no longer possible as the only the .svn is now at the root of 
the whole project!
I assume there are some valid reasons for this, but how do you go about 
solving tree conflicts efficiently then?

We typically get a tree conflict if one guy as deleted a file and 
another guy as made changes to the file.
In the old days, the guy deleting the file could simply remove his 
folder, do an update and the delete the file again.
This is not possible now, if he deletes the folder and does an update 
subversion won't give him the file back. Svn just keep claiming a tree 

What is the best way to resolve this?
We did try clean-up and resolve etc..

Regards, Sune
