Subject Problem with svnsync when the auth directory has been removed
Date Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:29:40 GMT
When the .config/auth directory has been removed (or has never
existed, e.g. when the mirror repository is accessed from a
different machine), I get an error:

$ svnsync sync file://$PWD/svn-mpfr
svnsync: E165001: Revprop change blocked by pre-revprop-change hook (exit code 1) with output:
Only the svnsync user can change revprops

with the pre-revprop-change hook mentioned on:

I would have expected the username "svnsync" to be remembered.

There's no documentation at all about the way it is remembered, and
the relation to the .config/auth directory was not obvious: there's
nothing related to authentication here.

It seems that the fix is to provide the "--sync-username svnsync"
option to svnsync, and then this option is no longer needed. Again,
this is not documented.
