Subject [jira] Commented: (MCHANGELOG-16) when using svn, links are wrong

Julian Wood commented on MCHANGELOG-16:

Dennis, I think you are missing a lot of information. I haven't had time to look in detail,
but let me fill you in from what I know, and what I suspect.

1. The decision to close - websvncommons? That is just our URL. Not the name of the presentation
system, which is websvn ( Try looking that up in google :-) As far
as I know, not just svn, but every web presentation system has a different url for to show
the listing of a directory vs the detailed changes or the printout of a file, which was the
point of this change. I don't know how you can justify forcing a single URL on developers
to cover all potential cases.

2. I suspect that your conclusion that it breaks other systems is wrong. We basically add
one 'if' clause to a number of others, to account for this case in particular. The other cases
were untouched. That in itself should give you confidence in the patch. We tested it with
other systems and it was fine with everyone for over 6 months. So I think there was some other
coincidental problem that you encountered. And if there was a problem, how could it be anything
more than a trivial fix? Why was the problem never described, at all? I'm sure your new problem
would be easy to fix.

So, I'm going to reopen the issue, because I think it's incredibly valuable to be able to
click on the link in the changelog, and actually see the file you clicked on (which does not
work without such a patch).
