SVN Directory Out of Date


When working with SVN one may encounter the error “Directory is out of date”. There can be several reasons why this would be the case.

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Directory '/some/directory' is out of date

One thing you can do to try to remedy the situation is to change directory to /some/directory and perform a svn update.

cd /some/directory
svn update

This may bring the problem directory to the current revision and solve the issue. You can then proceed with the commit as normal.
