Subversion File Status Reference

Something that confuses a lot of people when they start using subversion is the file status. (svn st) Here is a quick list of the file status codes and what they mean:

  • A File was added
  • C Conflicting changes
  • D File was deleted
  • G File was merged
  • R File was replaced
  • U File was updated
  • ? File is not under version control (you will need to add it)
  • ! File is missing (probably was deleted using the OS or some other application and not subversion)
