Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 455052
Client capabilities are not being passed to the start-commit hook
Last modified: 2009-07-15 04:24:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Client capabilities are not being passed to the start-commit hook. SVN 1.5
allows the capabilities of the client to be passed as the third parameter in the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a start-commit hook. For debugging, make it echo $3 to stderr
2. Attempt a commit to the repository using a 1.5 client. I've tried koji-build
subversion-1.5.0-8.fc9 rpms, rebuilt subversion-1.5.0-8.fc9 srpm, mandriva
2008.1 rebuilt svn 1.5 srpm (from cooker), tortoisesvn 1.5, collabnet svn 1.5
win32 binaries and subclipse 1.4 in linux.
No output implying empty $3
a colon-separated list of capabilities e.g. mergeinfo
I've tried a mandriva svn server and the capabilities were returned (not empty)
mod_dav_svn or svnserve? Can you produce a minimal repro case.
I'm using mod-dav_svn. A repo created with svnadmin 1.5 experiences the same
I have tried but ultimately failed to find the root cause of the problem. Here
are some of my observations:
* Using Collabnet's rpm for Red Hat works (doesn't experience this problem).
* Using the source tarball doesn't work.
* Uninstalling httpd with --nodeps and reinstalling it using yum doesn't work.
Here are some possibly useful verseion info:
What mod_dav_svn package version? (it should match the subversion package version)
Can you try this with the Subversion 1.5.1 packages from updates-testing? I can't reproduce it here with those packages.
Though nor can I reproduce it with mod_dav_svn-1.5.0-8.fc9. This is strange.
OK, this is a bug in mod_dav_svn. Whether it works or not is random. Having "KeepAlive on" will make it more likely to work, so ease of reproduce is dependent on the httpd configuration.
It works when I turned KeepAlive on. I'm using a recompiled mod_dav_svn-1.5.1-1.fc9.i386.
This was resolved upstream for 1.5.2, which is on its way to F9 updates-testing.
subversion-1.5.2-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update subversion'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-6536
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
