|Extending TRAMP with Subversion Support|
In principle, the dav:: method of Tramp should
work on Subversion repositories. Unfortunately,
it is not a native Tramp method: it delegates to
gvfs, which is a C daemon which pulls in a lot of
|How do I resolve a SVN tree conflict|
For merging to work, you need two things:
You need a common ancestry between the two
If you place on keeping the two branches, in sync,
you need to do regular merging between the two.
For example, I assume that all work on 3.1 should
be in 3.2. As you do work in both branches, you
should have been merging your 3.1 changes into
Merge conflicts happen because merging is a
|Checking out with an older version of SVN on server|
The issue is with the HTTP client libraries used
by each version. 1.8.x is using serf, 1.6 is
likely using neon by default. I had this problem a
few years ago but don't have my notes on how I
fixed it anymore, so here's what I can remember.
The best option is to upgrade your server; 1.6.x
is no longer supported and there are security
fixes in newer versions (the 1.6.x line went all
the way to 23
|SVN Update along with checkin user|
No. You would need to change the Subversion
sources and compile it for yourself to do that.
What you can do is to parse the output of svn up
and automatically look up the author for each
changed file, but that's it.
|Android Studio & SVN - How to mark files for deletion on next commit?|
I don't know anything about Android Studio, so I'm
just making a guess here based on other systems.
I'd guess there is a "remove" or "delete" option
in your "VCS" menu. You should use that to delete
items permanently. If there is no such menu
option, perhaps the SVN plugin interfaces directly
with Android Studio, in which case you could just
use a "remove" or "delete" menu item on the file
|Subversion merge changes by character, not by line|
Yes, SVN will always show a conflict in this case.
But a conflict does not mean the merge "failed".
It just means it can't finish automatically and
you need to help it complete the merge.
Get a good 3-way merge tool like Meld or KDiff3
and this sort of conflict is very easy to resolve.
|Branching issue for developing new feature (dependent on other projects)|
Should I, each time, create new branches in each
project that will be changed?
You have to do it. But, from other side you can
try to use "lazy way" (SVN externals and SVN 1.8.*
are not mandatory, but preferred):
Create in each dependent (B|C|D|...) repository
Link this branch's PEG-revision from Project_A
Merge dependent finished changes into correspondi
|Ignore the files from merging|
AFAIK, you can't ignore files being merge, but
after the merge completed (and conflicted were
created), you're able to resolve conflicts in
specific files using "your side" version or "their
side" version of the file. To cite svn help
--accept ARG : specify automatic

|SVN: too many revisions. is there are faster way than `blame` to get the latest committer on a specific line?|
You can tell blame to only consider some subset of
the revisions in your project to speed things
along to some extent. Especially if you know the
line changed sometime after a certain date or
revision. Do this with the -r flag just like most
of the other svn commands.
|SVN externals and tagging|
There is no command-line tool in SVN, to my
knowledge, that will automatically fix the
externals for tagging.
However, TortoiseSVN gives you this option
whenever you create a tag.
It does this by making a second commit to the tag,
after the tag is created, that sets all externals
to a fixed revision on whatever path they are
already pointing to.
You could do this manually by tagging, modifying
|issuse about cygwin and ms-dos style path|

backslash () in the file Path. In Windows both

more thing: Linux is case sensitive. Watch out for

|How to find the revisions in a merge?|
If Billy-Bob has done things properly, then SVN
stores the merged revisions in a special property,
"svn:mergeinfo". The command svn mergeinfo
--show-revs merged trunk_url branch_url will show
that information to you. See
If you use TortoiseSVN, you can check the "show
merged revisions" box in the "Show Log" dialog, to
