Subject Update in excluded directory schedules files for deletion
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 15:26:05 GMT

Can someone please look at this issue, I think it is a bug.  I have a 
working copy with some directories, some have private files in them.  I 
don't need one of the directories and exclude it from the working copy 
with "svn up --set-depth=exclude".  The directory remains because there 
were private files.  If I change into the excluded directory I can query 
the status and update!  The update reports a tree conflict.  If I choose 
"mark resolved" the directory is scheduled for deletion.  Is this 
intended behavior?  I would expect that an excluded directory is like a 
private directory, i.e. no status and update is possible.  I think it is 
dangerous if an update schedules something for deletion.  It's an 
update, not a remove.  Tested with version 1.8.8 compiled on 

Try these commands:

svnadmin create repo
svn co file://`pwd`/repo wc
svn mkdir wc/dir
echo a > wc/dir/file1
svn add wc/dir/file1
svn ci -m "Added data." wc
cd wc/
echo b > dir/file2
svn up --set-depth=exclude dir
cd dir/
svn st -u
svn up
svn ci
