Subject: No possibility to configure svnlook binary before it is used
Download (untitled) / with headers

A new SVN::Notify insteance is created at line 127, without any configuration value. It triggers a systematic failure if svnlook is not at default location (/usr/local/bin/svnlook) or SNVLOOK environment variable is not set (which is unpractical in a remote SVN repository). It could be considered a more general bug in SVN::Notify to hardcode a binary location instead of relying on path for finding it, but it makes SVN::Notify::Config unusable with subversion installed by distribution packages under /usr.

David Wheeler added a new method to SVN::Notify so that subclasses can easily search for the binaries need to do their work, rather than relying on a hard-coded path. This limitation will be fixed in SVN::Notify::Config 0.8. John

My testing with newest SVN::Notify and the 0.8 release of SVN::Notify::Config shows that there is no longer a problem with svnlook binaries located in "non-standard" locations. John
