Hi all,
New to this python thing..  I am trying to run a python script to
convert sccs data to svn data (sccs2svn.py).  Downloaded this off the
web, and it sounds like it should do what I need it to,  but I can not
seem to get it to run.  I keep getting the following error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/hkroh/bin/python_scripts/sccs_te.py", line 481, in ?
n/core.py", line 33, in run_app
File "/home/hkroh/bin/python_scripts/sccs_te.py", line 418, in run
File "/home/hkroh/bin/python_scripts/sccs_te.py", line 242, in add
print self._commit(revision, delta.getDate(), transaction, subpool)
File "/home/hkroh/bin/python_scripts/sccs_te.py", line 162, in _commit
return repos.svn_repos_fs_commit_txn(self.repos_ptr, txn, subpool)
libsvn._core.SubversionException: ("Can't remove
'SVN_skill/db/transactions/0-1.txn': Directory not empty", 39)
I go to the offending directory and I see a .nfs<blah> file.  When I
touch the file, it disappears.
I do not know enough about python, or the add on module that is causing
this failure.  
Can someone please point me in the right direction in solving my
Please let me know what else you need to know to help with this.
Thanks in advance for any help,
