Hi all,

I recently adapted the SPEC and patches in the repository for subversion-1.7.1
and installed it locally. It works in general, but there are two problems:

1. All working copies need to be upgraded to the new version using the "svn
upgrade" command. Otherwise, every "svn" operation does not work at all.

2. The included patch is required to fix the "mgarepo submit" command:

--- /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/MgaRepo/svn.py.orig	2011-11-10 20:38:12.188303496 +0200
+++ /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/MgaRepo/svn.py	2011-11-10 20:38:15.464303602 +0200

     def info(self, path, **kwargs):
         cmd = ["info", path + '@' if '@' in path else path]
         status, output = self._execsvn(local=True, noerror=True, *cmd, **kwargs)
-        if "Not a versioned resource" not in output:
+        if (("Not a versioned resource" not in output) and ("svn: warning: W155010" not in output)):
             return output.splitlines()
         return None
So we may wish to delay the upgrade until mgarepo is fixed and until after the
first Mageia 2 alpha.
