Hi Sandro,

The devel and release repositories are distinct.

svn co

svn co https://hedgehog.fhcrc.org/bioconductor/trunk/madman/Rpacks/VegaMC

Work on the two should be kept separate, ie, to work on release you need
to check out release, make the fix then check in. From the error, it
looks like you've checked out from devel and are trying to check into
