Subject RE: [Bug] svn export -r <rev> of single file fails if there is a newer revision available than the exported one
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2017 14:15:20 GMT
The -r123 and @123 functions have completely different behavior.

 

The @ syntax looks up the url as it was in in revision r123 and fetches the file from there

The -r checks the path as it currently exists, back to the path it had in revision 123…
following copies, renames, etc.

(Note: you can combine these functions to trace a url backwards starting with a specific revision)

 

So this is most likely the completely documented behavior. See the Subversion book on  <http://svnbook.red-bean.com>

Subject: [Bug] svn export -r <rev> of single file fails if there is a newer revision
available than the exported one

 

SVN server: V1.8.14 (r1692801)

 

Hi, 

 

When trying to export a dedicated file of a special revision by using 

# svn export –r <revision> https://svn-server/trunk/myfile.txt

everything is working fine as long as no newer revision of this file is available in the repository.


 

If a newer revision is available on the server, the following error message is returned: 

                svn: E195012: Unable to find repository location for <myfile> in revision
<revision>

 

The “@syntax” is working fine: 

# svn export https://svn-server/trunk/myfile.txt@ <https://svnserver/trunk/myfile.txt@%3crevision>
<revision>

 

Is this an already known bug of SVN or perhaps an undocumented feature? 

 

Thanks and best regards

 

Andreas
