Hi, I want to congratulate to all the contributors of SVK, it's a great software, and exactly what I was looking for. I have, however, the following problem: I want to mirror an entire subversion tree. I issued the command: Show quoted text
> svk mirror file:///local/koster/subversion/foo /test/mirror > svk sync /test/mirror
and got the output: ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Committed revision 2 from revision 1. [...] Committed revision 13 from revision 12. Committed revision 14 from revision 13. Skipped revision 14. Oh no, no more exceptions! add_directory() failed. at /usr/local/packages/perl-5.8.7/lib/site_perl/5.8.7/SVN/Mirror/ line 1044. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The path /local/koster/subversion/foo is the path to the root of the subversion repository, so it is self-contained. The subversion repository was created by converting a CVS repo with cvs2svn. The dump log of cvs2svn for the affected revision and the one before it is -------------------------------------------------------------------- Revision-number: 13 Prop-content-length: 145 Content-length: 145 K 10 svn:author V 5 aradi K 8 svn:date V 27 2004-04-03T16:21:46.000000Z K 7 svn:log V 45 Import of the directrory structure for DFTB. PROPS-END Revision-number: 14 Prop-content-length: 162 Content-length: 162 K 10 svn:author V 5 aradi K 8 svn:date V 27 2004-04-03T16:21:46.000000Z K 7 svn:log V 62 This commit was manufactured by cvs2svn to create tag 'START'. PROPS-END Node-path: cvstags/START Node-action: add Node-copyfrom-rev: 13 Node-copyfrom-path: /cvsbranches/DFTB_DEVEL ----------------------------------------------------------------------- (cvs2svn was made in two steps. At first, I created a dump of the cvs repository, then I created a directory in the subversion repository with Show quoted text
> svn mkdir file:///local/koster/subversion/foo/srcdftb
and then I loaded the dump into subversion, but with file://local/koster/subversion/foo/srcdftb as parent directory. Therefore, the paths in the dump do not contain the "srcdftb/" prefix) It looks, as if SVK had problems to create srcdftb/cvstags/START, and I wonder, why. The cvstags directory exists: Show quoted text
> svk list /test/mirror/srcdftb/
cvsbranches/ cvstags/ cvstrunk/ Show quoted text
> svk list /test/mirror/srcdftb/cvstags
(Returns nothing -> cvstags is empty) If I mirror the repository (after deleting the old mirror) beginning with the first revision after the affected one Show quoted text
> svk sync /test/mirror -s 15
then everything is fine. I hope this helps a little bit in improving this great software. Cheers, Bálint
