Now the same problem happened also to other projects, after I had to change the content of the svn:ignore property to avoid that other files are sent to the repository, and to subdirectories of the original project; so avoiding to commit the top directory is not a good solution anymore. Not those files that were part of the commit have a more recent revision, simply a higher revision number. As an commit in subversion is never an update this commit takes all directories that were not part of the commit in an "out of date" state - they are no longer present in the latest revision.I tried everything: It is not possible to send the changes of the svn:property to the repository, cleaning does help. Let me try to explain in simple words: SVN cannot merge structural changes - so if you move a file to a new localtion and somebody else does a move to a different location of the same file this will not work. Now you want to change a property in one of those directories, e.g. Try to commit: error message - which is caused by the server and not by the svn client subversive or one of its components.I have recently run into a particularly sticky issue regarding committing the result of a merge in subversion.Our Subversion server is @ 1.5.0 and my Tortoise SVN client is now @ 1.6.1.Error: Commit failed (details follow): Error: File or directory '.' is out of date; try updating Error: resource out of date; try updating I'm the only one on the project, so no one else could have updated anything.
ds Forum Id=4061&ds Message Id=2271275 To unsubscribe from this discussion, e-mail: [users-unsubscribe_at_tortoisesvn.tigris.org].When I try to commit the changes of the top directory of my project in Eclipse to its sourceforge subversion repository, I get this error: Merge conflict during commit svn: Commit failed (details follow): svn: File or directory '.' is out of date; try updating svn: resource out of date; try updating.Checking on the internet I've found some articles that was mentioning the svn:ignore property of the directory as the cause of the problem.However you usually will want to let Tortoise handle merging any changes for you.I had the exact same issue, it turns out that there are hidden folders containing data that tortoise uses to maintain some record of changes that have been made.
