One of the things that can make SVN work a mess is to loose track of local directories and files that have been switched (with svn switch) to other URLs in your repository.
The batch file below will help you track those down.
Run it from your repository root.
The batch files uses these things:

One of the hard things in TorsoiseSVN is moving around files and keep their version history.
You can right-drag, but that is not convenient when your VM host is a Mac. And (even if you only use the SVN commandline tools) you have to remember to:
- Create and commit the target directory first
- Move the file using TortoiseSVN
- Commit a directory that is common root to both the source and target directory.
Luckily, there is a trick that works directory on the repository using the Repository Browser. It is not fast, but works splendid.
Thanks to Ralph Whitbeck for answering this on SO:
In TortoiseSVN right click somewhere and go TortoiseSVN > Repo Browser open the repository.
All you then have to do is drag and drop the file from one folder to the where you want it. It’ll ask you to add a commit message and it defaults it to “Moved file/folder remotely”
After this step, you have to perform an SVN Update from the root of your repository for the change to apply locally!

When using any version control system, understanding which idiom you should follow to do proper branching, merging, tagging, etc is key to your process, and the most difficult thing to get a feel for.
For me, the most confusing part is that branches, tags, and the trunk are directories (both on your development system and the SVN server), and it is hard to see which local directory is switched to what remote one.
As soon as I understood that this was the most confusing aspect for me, I could focus on it and handle it much better.
For SVN (and TortoiseSVN), these links proved to be very valuable for me: Read the rest of this entry »

Recently I got an error like this in Continua CI:
Build ErrorUnable to start build – No changesets found in repository: [FastMM-jeroenp]
This was about my Git FastMM repository on BitBucket. Which is a Git repository originally gotten through Git SVN (more on that at a later time).
Since it is not an SVN repository, SVN – No changesets found in repository – VSoft Technologies does not apply, but got me closer to the solution
The solution is this
