Good for you. Yes, I'll have to take a look at that ... but that'll take some time.

That means that the repository has a newer version of this entry (/proc) than FSVS
reports as being locally.

Do you work on this repository from another WC too?
Next time you could try "fsvs update".

That's the same problem as before, in the other thread.

Because you had a second working copy ... look at the symlinks /etc/fsvs/*/_base to see
the base paths.

Good luck!

Hmmm, normally subversion should do atomic commits - and if you don't interrupt FSVS
right in the split-second part where the commit has happened but the local WC data has
not, it shouldn't be a problem.

Do you use that repository from another working copy, too?
