WordPress Update Fun

Time to update WordPress to 4.7.3. I used the SVN method.
I was using an older version of SVN and required me to update the local checkout.
$ svn upgrade

Fine. Did it.

$ svn sw https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3/ .
svn: E155025: 'svn switch' does not support switching a working copy to a different repository
svn: E155025: 'http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.4'
is not the same repository as
'https://core.svn.wordpress.org'
What?
$ svn info

Path: .
Working Copy Root Path: /.../blogs/chwalisz
URL: http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.4
Relative URL: ^/tags/4.4
Repository Root: http://core.svn.wordpress.org
Repository UUID: 1a063a9b-81f0-0310-95a4-ce76da25c4cd
Revision: 36122
Smells like I need to relocate, like I did when they moved from the automattic svn repo.  See codex Relocating From The Old svn.automattic.com
First see what it SHOULD be:
$ svn co https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3 new-chwalisz-test
A    new-chwalisz-test/index.php
A    new-chwalisz-test/wp-config-sample.php
...

^new-chwalisz-test$ svn info
Working Copy Root Path: /.../new-chwalisz-test
URL: https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3
Relative URL: ^/tags/4.7.3
Repository Root: https://core.svn.wordpress.org
Repository UUID: 1a063a9b-81f0-0310-95a4-ce76da25c4cd
Revision: 40218
Note the change:
Repository Root: http://core.svn.wordpress.org
to
Repository Root: https://core.svn.wordpress.org
Try?
svn switch --relocate http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3 https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3/
BUT — svn 1.7 supports the relocate option.
so maybe….
instead of
$ svn relocate http://svn.company.com/repos/trunk
we use
$ svn relocate https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3/
Let’s try!
/blogs/chwalisz$ svn relocate https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.4
/blogs/chwalisz$ svn info
Path: .
Working Copy Root Path: /.../blogs/chwalisz
URL: https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.4
Relative URL: ^/tags/4.4
Repository Root: https://core.svn.wordpress.org
Repository UUID: 1a063a9b-81f0-0310-95a4-ce76da25c4cd
Revision: 36122
So does it blend?
$ svn sw https://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/4.7.3/ .
NOW we have some conflicts. I did not mark as resolved – maybe should have…
/blogs/chwalisz/wp-content/themes$ svn st
D C twentyten/404.php

/blogs/chwalisz/wp-content/themes/twentyten$ svn st
/blogs/chwalisz/wp-content/themes/twentyten$ <nothing!!!>
Repeat until bored…
svn st is now clean, except for my manually edited themes.
Now visit the usual wp-admin/upgrade.php URL
Done!
