Subject error: Revision file lacks trailing newline
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 20:14:12 GMT
Hello Folks,

I was getting an error while trying to checkout a directory, and some
investigation with VisualSVN's server manager turned up an error in a
couple of files ("Corrupt node-revision '5-2893.0.r2893/0' Missing id
field in node-rev").

I then ran svnadmin verify, and got the following:

    * Verified revision 2433.
    * Verified revision 2434.
    * Verified revision 2435.
    svnadmin: E160004: Revision file (r2436) lacks trailing newline

Looking online seems to indicate that this might have to do with commits
> 4GB, though that was an old problem.  Given that more than 1 file was
problematic in the server manager, I figure there might be more than one
corrupted revision.  The damaged files aren't critical and haven't
changed since being committed for the first time.  I have working copies
of them.

Any thoughts about how I might go about repairing the repo?


VisualSVN Server 2.5.2
svn 1.7.7
