Issue #

From: <cmpilato_at_collab.net>
Date: 2003-04-16 02:00:26 CEST

(Roughly) this just posted into issue #1101 (updates should receive
checksums via a live prop, like checkouts). Just polling for comments
here, too.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually, I have a bit of a concern about this issue.

Unlike checkouts, updates have not just a text-checksum to worry
about, but also a base-checksum (the checksum of the base text to
which svndiff data is applied). There is no liveprop for this, so we
have a few choices:

   1. Leave things as they are -- which works just fine, but perhaps
   seemed wrong to whoever came up with this issue because the
   text-checksum, which *is* a liveprop, is not sent down the wire
   like other liveprops, but as an XML attribute instead.

   2. Send both the base- and text-checksums like liveprops, even though
   there is no base-checksum liveprop -- which seems kind of wrong.

   3. Send the text-checksum as a prop, and continue sending the
   base-checksum as an XML attribute -- which makes the protocol
   confusing.

Thotz, anyone?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Given the ugliness of options 2 and 3, I'm leaning toward 1 (which
means we close the issue right now and never look back). But perhaps
I'm lacking some historical data on why the issue was filed in the
first place?
