Subject Re: Bug: svn: E000002: Can't create temporary file from template '/tmp/svn-XXXXXX': No such file or directory
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2012 09:33:57 GMT
Hi Edwin,

Seems like HP-UX's mktemp() shouldn't be used by APR.
Cross-posting this to apr-dev. I believe it should be addressed
in APR rather than Subversion.
