I tried to merge from a foreign repository into an local checked out working copy which is empty using the latest self-compiled version 1.6.13 on ubuntu 10.10 and the distribution provided version as well (1.6.12 (r955767) ). The attempts to merge failed. svn merge http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/dragonegg/trunk I get the following output: --- Merging (from foreign repository) r74898 through r83829 into '.': A llvm-debug.cpp A llvm-backend.cpp C gcc-patches A darwin ... A exports.map G llvm-backend.cpp svn: Attempt to add tree conflict that already exists at 'gcc-patches' svn: Error reading spooled REPORT request response Thanks.
