Dear Sir,


We want to develop a feature like git pull request .


But it is not easy to develop. Svn has only one server , how to store the patches? If build failed , how to revert working copy. How to resolve the conflict.


Git is a better , it can support pre-commit code review, pull request by default. Is subversion able to develop these features in the future?.


We like subversion ,we build a lot tools for subversion, like the pre-commit code reviewissue plugincode countsvn multisite (same as Wandisco’s svn multisite plus) ,but it’s became hard and hard, is it time for us to give up svn?


Best Regards!

Dear Sir,


During I am testing the -include' and '-exclude' options on 'svnadmin dump'  ,  I found that if I copy a non-include file, the  dump result is to add a file with file content; But if the copy is a non-include directory, the dump only adds this directory.


I think, this may be wrong, it should be copy of the directory and all the files under the directory .


[root@RD-230 subversion]# svnadmin dump /data1/svnroot/Dev --incremental -r 13386 --include "/CM Action/Tools" > /tmp/test.dmp

In fact, the copy directory has many files. But the dump file is only add a new dir.



Hi Nathan,


Thanks for reporting this.

I see you had previously filed an issue about this in our issue tracker: (a issue of --include' and '--exclude' options on 'svnadmin dump')

(and added this in comment to the "feature request issue" (Add '--include' and '--exclude' options to 'svnadmin dump'))


And you were directed here to discuss the issue.


This does indeed look like a bug / shortcoming of the current "dump with include/exclude".


I hope someone with expertise in this area of funtionality might be able to comment here.
