Setting a default commit log editor for the Subversion command line client

On Windows, open the text file C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Subversion\config. Put the following two lines in there to set notepad as your default editor:

[helpers] editor-cmd = notepad

Known issues

Svn update says: object with the same name already exists

When you update your working copy with svn update, you may get the following error message:

svn up: "object with the same name already exists"

Subversion displays the error message because the directory is replaced in the repository and your working copy contains data which is unknown to Subversion (you working copy is locally modified). Since Subversion does everything it can to not cause harm to your data, you must remove or move the data which is not in the repository out of the working copy.

This scenario won't happen very often though. You have two options to correct resolve the problem:

  • Remove the affected directory and run svn update again
  • Remove all files and directories in the working copy that are unknown to Subversion and then run svn update again. These are the files and directories that are marked with ? in the output from svn status
