Subject SVN keywords in 1.4.5 sources (was Re: EU mirror for Apache svn)
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2008 16:21:04 GMT
A problem with the mirror is that it makes the $URL keyword of SVN no
longer unique. I noticed that while auditing the newest 1.4.5 release.
My local checkout


has "normal" svn.apache.org URLs in the files that use the keyword, for example


whereas the source package from
has different keywords, probably because Jukka used the mirror in his
latest 1.4.5 checkouts/commits:


Do we have to live with that little annoyance or is there a workaround
(that still lets people use the mirror)?
