Subversion stores a collection of readme files and when the upgrade process tries to delete them it fails to and then fails the upgrade process.  Am I the first person on this list to experience this?  It fails in a very ungraceful way, i.e. basically it just says "Sorry, sux to be you." ;-)

Sorry if I'm missing something here.
But why don't you just go the *real* SVN way ?

Empty your repository at svn.wp-plugins.org

Then create it again and do a whole commit from your computer.

If I'm not missing something here, that's just about it.

Right ?
