Subject Build Locks SVN Workspace
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 16:25:56 GMT
Has anyone seen a situation where a continuum build doesn't release a
lock on its Subversion workspace?


We have a weekly build scheduled that does a full check-out. Hourly
builds are scheduled with simple workspace updates.


I'm attempting to re-create a ci environment with continuum 1.2.3. To
'prime the pump', I manually trigger the weekly build. It succeeds. When
the next scheduled hourly build runs, it fails with


Provider message: The svn command failed.
Command output: 
svn: Working copy 'D:\dev\ci\webdev\working-directory\1' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for
Type 'svn help' for usage.


I do find some old postings [c. 2007] suggesting that continuum/svn may
have been shutdown with a build in progress. The postings recommended
doing a manual 'svn cleanup' on the workspace. A shutdown hasn't
occurred in this case, and the 'cleanup' shouldn't be necessary. I've
tried it anyway and the hourly builds continue to fail with the same


Any ideas? Thanks.
