SVN: Change prevprops in pre-commit

+1 vote

I see in pre-commit hook template that changing revisions properties in transaction are allowed.But I cant find way for it (I want change svn:author to more readable).

Is here way for this with svn, svnadmin, svnlook ... or other standard tool? Or I should use Subversion API and write simple tool?

We have an svn repository with several branches and tags.

- trunk/
- branches/
 - stable_1
 - stable_2
 - etc.
- tags/
 - stable_1_release_a
 - stable_1_release_b
 - etc.

We develop our software in trunk (or in a development branch which will be reintegrated to trunk). We merge the changes from trunk to a stable branch. Sometimes we discover a bug which has been introduced quite some time ago. Because the list of branches becomes quite long, I would like to know if it is possible to easily see in which branches / tags the bug is?
So if for instance the bug was introduced in r50 in trunk and currently we are at r100, is there an svn command to see which branches / tags have r50 of trunk merged?

My most recent commit was the creation of a tag. I want to delete that tag. Should I reverse merge the commit or simply delete the tag?

If I do a reverse merge I see a tree conflict:

C:>svn merge -c -69  

--- Reverse-merging r69 into '.': 

 C tagsTAG_ 

--- Recording mergeinfo for reverse merge of r69 into '.': 

U . 

Tree conflict on 'tagsTAG_ 

 > local dir edit, incoming dir delete upon merge 

Select: (r) mark resolved, (p) postpone, (q) quit resolution, (h) help: 

What is the best thing to do here?

We are using Subversion (SVN 1.6.12-r955802).

Since the Apache version 2.2.24 has some security issues (multi-site security issue), we have moved to Apache version 2.2.25. But this updated version has the second commit issue. Issue details are given below.

"The issue with Apache 2.2.25 is when you have 'space' in folder name / file name. The first commit of these files / folders (with space in the name) is successful. We are facing issue only when subsequent commit is happening. We are using Tortoise SVN as client"

I periodically receive this kind of errors -

X:>svn commit -m "BLA BLA" itextsharp.dll iTextSharp.xml
Sending iTextSharp.xml
Sending itextsharp.dll
Transmitting file data ..
svn: E135000: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E135000: While preparing 'iTextSharp.xml' for commit
svn: E135000: Inconsistent line ending style
svn: E720032: Additional errors:
svn: E720032: Transaction '1718-1ca' cleanup failed
svn: E720032: Can't remove file 'Depotdbtxn-protorevs1718-1ca.rev': The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Question 1: Is there a way to have SVN normalize line ending on commit by itself?
Question 2: Why txn-protorevs aren't being cleaned up properly?

I'm working on a project that used to use a proprietary CM system (aka oldCM). At a point in time, the state of the code was frozen and used as the basis for commits in SVN.

What I would like to to do is take the individal commits from the oldCM and place them into git knowing that the time/date stamps won't match. Then I want to do whatever is necessary to setup git so that I can run "svn rebase" to pull in the commits from the SVN repository.

What is the easy way to do this?
