Hi Stephan,

Thank you for your answer. Yes, it worked as you expected. Since I am not familiar with SVN, how to keep the local directory updated after this command? An svn update in the LOGONROOT will also update the terg directory? Maybe it is important to say some words about it. The command was:

svn switch http://svn.emmtee.net/erg/trunk . --ignore-ancestry

So I am assuming that all 3 repositories below are in sync, right? Page http://moin.delph-in.net/LogonExtras says that 1 and 3  is the same SVN repository, but what about 2?

1. http://svn.emmtee.net/trunk
2. http://svn.delph-in.net/erg/trunk
3. http://logon.emmtee.net/erg/trunk

All the best,

Alexandre Rademaker
