Subject AW: svn status leaves out changes in externals
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2012 09:42:50 GMT

I have found the bug: The working copy was checked out using version 1.6.x that used svn:externals
to check out the externals. Later on this working copy was upgraded using TortoiseSVN to the
format used by version 1.7. It looks like this "upgrade" did not fully upgrade the externals.
I have deleted the externals and checked them out using "svn update" again. Now things work.

Did you create the externals by using 'svn checkout' or did you create 'your own externals'
by checking out a separate working copy and assumed Subversion would just use it as an external?

Svn status works correctly for me when I bring in externals using 'svn checkout' or 'svn update'.

In all versions up to 1.6.x "svn status" used to list all changed files including those found
in directories referenced using svn:externals. Using version 1.7.5 this is not the case any
longer. Even with option --depth infinite, changed files are not listed.  I consider this
a bug since it is not possible any more to recursively check for changed files, instead now
I have to manually check all subdirectories one by one.
