Since joining JBoss, a division of Red Hat, I've gotten to know the foibles of SVN rather intimately. Here are my two favourites, both encountered this week:
This client is too old to work with working copy; please get a newer Subversion client.
Problems reported while synchronizing SVNStatusSubscriber. 2 of 3 resources were synchronized. An error occurred synchronizing /devstudio-workspace: Error getting status for resource P/devstudio-workspace org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: This client is too old to work with working copy; please get a newer Subversion client
- Installing subversion-javahl-1.5.4-3.i386 (on Fedora 10 Rawhide) causes Ant 1.7.1 to fail to do SVN checkouts.
