I want to rename 'foo.js' to 'Foo.js', but when I try this:

svn move foo.js Foo.js

...I get this:

svn: Path 'Foo.js' is not a directory

What am I doing wrong? Also tried 'svn mv'  and got the same results..

Hi

I'm no expert with subversion, but it does make me wonder if you tried renaming to something else like Poo.js, and then moving it again to Foo.js.

Also,  did you read the notes on:

Check it out.
