[pypy-dev] svn up: "object with the same name already exists"

If you do an "svn up" it is going to fail.  To solve that, delete the
following two directories from your working copy:


(These directories are at the same level as the one called "pypy".)

Then do svn up again.

The cause is that we switched to a new version of Pyrex and reorganized the
repository to make it easier to switch to new versions in the future:  Pyrex
is now tracked in http://codespeak.net/svn/vendor/Pyrex/.  It is copied from
there and modified as needed for PyPy.  See the svn commit message for

As a result, the directory pypy/trunk/src/Pyrex, which used to be an external
link, is now a real directory.  Subversion doesn't realize the external link
is gone before it tries to create the directory, and complains because a
directory of the same name already exists in your working copy.
