Moving Files VSS problem

Postby Firdan » Fri Feb 24, 2006 9:47 pm

Our VSS database has files that have been moved frlom one java package to another, thereby giving them histories that list multiple paths for the same file. For instance, revisions 1 to 10 have one path for the file, and then at revision 11, the file is moved to a different location giving it a different path.

When I build a SVN dump of this VSS database, errors occur when it tries to add the moved file to the dump. Instead of marking the file as being Added upon first seeing it, the file is marked as changed.

Then, when attempting to load this database, svnadmin gives an error saying that the file does not exist in the database, because the file is marked as changed and it hasn't yet been added.
I have no idea how to fix this.

I apologize if this is vague... I will try and clarify more if neccessary.
