In this case, I'd probably run a checkout with the -r option and then an update to get the empty directories. This seems to be the quickest solution. (If you run a checkout without -r before, you may get all kinds of files that you don't want and later have to update them to the branch.) What I usually do if I need an empty directory in the repo is to place a placeholder file in it so that it isn't empty anymore. Gerhard
