julianf: hey folks: I get a wierd error trying to commit "Wimp" status
for that failing test (basic_tests 7):
julianf: svn: The specified baseline is not the latest baseline, so it
may not be checked out.
julianf: svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
hwright: what's a "baseline"?
julianf: I guess it means "your BASE revision" (pristine).
julianf: I've updated, of course, and all looks fine:
julianf: $ svn st -uv subversion/tests/cmdline/basic_tests.py
julianf: M 885821 885378 julianfoad
julianf: Status against revision: 885821
julianf: Trying to find out if there's something wierd about the
particular dev build I'm using.
cmpilato: 'baseline' is a WebDAV term.
cmpilato: and yeah, that's an out-of-date error in so many words.
julianf: cmpilato/anyone: I'm at a loss what to do about that "baseline"
cmpilato: julianf: i usually just cry.
julianf: can't commit. Haven't re-built my client since last successful
commit. Have updated the WC.
cmpilato: and sip chamomile tea.
cmpilato: got interfering/stale wcprops?
* julianf doesn't understand.
cmpilato: dav props?
julianf: I've heard of them. How would I get them / find them?
cmpilato: those seekr1t little buggers that the dav layers use to cache
stuff like "the revision of this thing"
cmpilato: using 1.6?
cmpilato: or trunk client?
julianf: no, trunk yesterday opr so
cmpilato: then the wcprops live in the wc db.
cmpilato: i don't have the incantations on hand to examine that, but
that's what i'd recommend.
julianf: maybe wc is hosed... will try diff/patching the change I want
to commit onto A different WC...
cmpilato: "wc is hosed" isn't something we prefer to just write off as
business-as-usual, of course.
cmpilato: (though i certainly feel your pain... sub*cough* *hack*athon)
CIA-66: julianfoad *
r885840 /trunk/subversion/tests/cmdline/basic_tests.py: Mark
basic_tests.py 7 as "Wimp" because it's currently a known failure. ...
julianf: hah, that worked.
julianf: So my WC was "hosed" in some sense.
julianf: cmpilato: thanks for the clue that it was a WC problem. I
hadn't guessed that from the error message & symptoms.
cmpilato: have you preserved the busted WC?
julianf: I traced it through 5 re-tries of "get latest baseline". It
thought it was out of date, but wasn't, so maybe a bug there. I was (and
am) using Neon, BTW.
julianf: Yes I have the WC.
julianf: I could make it available.
cmpilato: that'd be cool.
julianf: WC on which "commit" says "baseline" is out of date but isn't.
Maybe spurious DAV-props?
lisppaste4: cmpilato pasted "Julian's davprops" at
* cmpilato wonders if 'svn cleanup' should purge the dav_cache ...
cmpilato: still, in this case the version-urls for basic_tests.py and
its parent directory reflect that most-recent-at-the-time changes of
those items. weird.
<http://filebin.ca/benyyk/subversion-c-whole.tgz> is the whole WC of
which the previous was a subdir.
julianf: (Don't know if that shows you anything more.)
