Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45379] [Bug] svn merge, apache and trailing slashes
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2008 17:14:42 GMT

The problem is described in the linked mailing list item (and its successors).
I'll give a brief summary here again:

* Subversion uses DAV to implement its functionality in Apache.
* When using the svn merge command on a directory, subversion removes any
trailing slash (if present)
* Apache replies with a 302 redirect to the same URL with a trailing slash
* Subversion treats the redirect answer as error

I asked subversion to include the trailing slash, however they answered mod_dav
does not like trailing slashes. So it seems that mod_dav and some other part in
apache don't agree on whether they want the URL with or without trailing slash.

Steps to reproduce:

* install recent versions of apache and subversion
* create a repository and a branch
* do an svn merge of a whole subtree (i.e. svn merge -rx:y
http://localhost/svn/my_repository/some_directory my_working_copy_directory)
