Subject any svn experts out there
Date Thu, 19 Jan 2012 20:37:17 GMT
Hi all,

As you've heard we have the frameworks code staged and ready to go.  We
would really like to preserve the svn commit history of the files but I
haven't been able to figure out how to do that.
I am not a svn server expert although I've learned more than I want to
know about it this week.  The dump of our svn repository is 72GB with
23000+ revisions.  The repository contains source for about 15 different
projects at Adobe and I would guess each project has many branches like
Flex.  I don't have access to that machine and that machine, with the 72GB
dump file, has almost no free disk space so it is hard to do almost
anything else.  More disk space has been requested but I was told it could
take days to get more space.

I had thought I could use use svndumpfilter to filter out the frameworks
directory in the apache staging branch we created a few weeks ago but I
realize now that I will just get the change logs up to the apache branch
creation a few weeks ago which isn't very interesting.

I then traced the history of the apache branch which I created from the
4.y branch and found 4.y was created from the trunk_private branch which
was created from the hero_private branch which was created from trunk.  So
there are lots of branches.

The version history is currently available at
http://opensource.adobe.com/svn/opensource/flex/sdk/branches/4.y but I
can't guarantee how long it will be there.

So the question now is what to do?
