SVN Problems (Newbie)


I’m in the process of learning Rails, following Agile Web Developmetn
with Rails 2nd Edition.

I’m trying to link my project to the rails repositry using this:

svn propset svn:externals “rails” vendor

However I have this error message:

subversion/libsvn_wc/lock.c:630: (apr_err=155007)
svn: ‘vendor’ is not a working copy

Can anyone help me?



Externals only work when your actual Rails project is under Subversion
control. What you are doing with this command is telling Subversion
don¹t look in the project tree for this code. Look here instead.² But it
appears you don¹t yet have a project tree so svn gives you the unhelpful
message you quoted.
