Ticket #73 (closed: fixed)
Errors when browsing old revisions with files/dirs which are deleted in HEAD
|Reported by:||MScharrer||Owned by:||alwin|
When browsing an old revision which files/dirs not present in the HEAD (deleted, moved) the following error message appears in the log window when you double-click on such an file to open it: "URL '<URL>' non-existent in revision '<HEADREV>'"
I replaced the displayed URL with <URL>, the displayed revision is the HEAD rev.
If you like to 'blame' such an file you get an pop-up message: SVN ERROR - kdesvn
'<URL>' is not a file
Similar when you do 'Full log': SVN ERROR - kdesvn
File not found: revision 35, path '<URL>'
(Rev 35 is my HEAD, <URL> and <REV> are standing here for displayed values, the browsed rev is rev 2)
That is also happening when using the svn command line client: $ svn info -r2 <URL> svn: File not found: revision 35, path '<PATH>'
but when telling svn that you look at the _repository_ in rev2: $ svn info <URL>@2 than it works!
kdesvn has to tell explicitly the wanted repository revision when accessing the repository (At the command line you would do this with the '@REV' tail on the URL). This is not an issue when browsing the HEAD rev.
I also saw some WEB frontends which has the same problems. This should be changed upstream in svn itself.
