SVN is a great version control sytem. I use it to have all my files synchronized among the many computers I use.

SVN arborescence conflicts typically occur when you delete a folder without using the appropriate SVN commands (e.g., “rm -Rf myfolder” instead” of “svn delete myfolder”). The easiest solution to solve such conflicts is is to do a “revert”, as follows:

cd my_folder
svn revert
svn update
svn delete the_folders_I_want_to_delete
svn commit
