Subversion repository upgrade

Post by omalleypat »

I was trying to use subversion's new reintegrate feature, and I got this error:

Code: Select all

svn: Retrieval of mergeinfo unsupported by 'https://moneymanagerex.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/moneymanagerex'
I have never really used this feature before, but it seems quite powerful. I think we should upgrade our repository...

I think perhaps madhan has to do this? I am not sure how svnadmin commands work with sourceforge, but I found this to help:

The right way to upgrade svn repository is backup using current svnadmin, upgrade svn version and restore from backup using new svnadmin.

Just curious about your reasons for doing it the way you describe? The subversion on sourceforge is already in the 1.6 series, we just need to upgrade our repository. Using svn update seems simpler to me.

*EDIT: just saw your link, but that seems out of date? It only mentions svn 1.4...

Haha, apparently Madhan is a pro at this anyway:
