Subject accessing svn config settings programmatically?
Date Sat, 16 Jan 2016 23:31:10 GMT
Is it possible to read (no need to write) svn configuration settings via
some svn command?

That is, something better than trying to discover the location of the
configuration file(s) and grepping or otherwise parsing them.  That's a
road I don't want to go down.

Specifically, what I want to know is the active value of
use-commit-times, so that my configure script and/or Makefile can inform
users who try to do a build from a checkout without it.  (Yes, the info
is in my documentation, but few people read documentation.)

I feel like I'm missing something obvious, but I've looked through the
svn book, mail archives, stack exchange, etc., with no luck.

Any help appreciated.  Thanks, Karl.

P.S.  I'm not subscribed to this list, so please cc me explicitly on
replies.  Thanks.
