#368 closed enhancement (fixed)

request to upgrade svn server to support mergeinfo

Reported by: mbedward Owned by: sac@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Systems Admin Keywords: svn server
Cc: aaime


I'm working on the GeoTools project. I notice that the OSGEO server is running svn version 1.4.3 which doesn't support mergeinfo.

If possible, upgrading the svn server to 1.5 would be much appreciated by those of us working with branches.

Just been struggling with not being able to use svn merge --reintegrate given the version of the server. It would really be good to upgrade to 1.5x soon.

Agreed, it would be nice, and it would make branch usage more popular

Michael, as an alternative for parallel development, the following seem a way: It should make it possible for you to have your own local copy that you can commit to, unfortunately it will make it harder for other people to see your progress (as in, I guess you'd have to stand up a bazaar server for other people to hit)

I support doing the upgrade of this if someone could research the following:

  • We have 32 repositories. Can the server software be upgraded from 1.4.2 to 1.5 without full dump/restore when using FSFS as the storage type?
  • What happens to a mirror ( that is using an older version of subversion? Must it be upgraded at the same time?
  • Do the 1.5 subversion bindings work with Trac 0.10?

There is no need for a dump/restore to move to 1.5 according to

On the Trac issue, there is some discussion of Trac issues when upgrading to svn 1.5 here:

We have upgraded the subversion server to 1.5.6, and I have upgraded the GeoTools? subversion repository using 'svnadmin upgrade' to bring the repository forward to 1.5.6. Please confirm that things are now working as you expect.

I just tried the svn mergeinfo command and it is now working. Many thanks for the upgrade - it will make working on branches much easier.

ok, all repositories have been upgraded to the 1.5 format and should support mergeinfo. Thanks.
