Subject svn diff property order
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2014 08:31:14 GMT
Hello all,

When doing an 'svn diff', the output includes the actual diff, but also the 
diff of the properties of the files. However, the properties don't always 
appear in the same order. This makes it difficult to use standard 'diff' 
tools to compare patches.

I had noticed this before on the order of the files in 'svn diff', but that 
seems to have been resolved by upgrading SVN 1.6 to 1.8. I currently use 
the following Subversion version:

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.8.8 (r1568071)
    compiled Feb 21 2014, 09:06:41 on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

I did some searches, and found bug 4134. It seems 'svnadmin dump', 'svn 
proplist', and 'svn propget' are/were affected as well:

To me, it would seem like a good idea to have a reproducible (sorted?) 
order of properties. What do you all think?

Best regards,
