[PATCH] error on export of nonexistent url

From: Martin Furter <mf_at_rola.ch>
Date: 2007-01-23 19:25:14 CET


Alexander Sinyushkin asked in IRC if it's a bug that export does not fail
for nonexistent URLs and DannyB said that many more people reported that
bug. So I wrote the following patch.

I ran the export tests only which show the following output before the
patch to export.c:

No error where one is expected
EXCEPTION: SVNExpectedStderr
FAIL: export_tests.py 3: export a nonexistent url

And this with the patch:

PASS: export_tests.py 2: export the greek tree
PASS: export_tests.py 3: export a nonexistent url
PASS: export_tests.py 4: export working copy

Shall I run the full test suite or is it enough to run the export tests
only for such a trivial patch?

If noone objects I'm going to run the full test suite and commit this in a
few days.


Print error on export of nonexistent URL.

* subversion/libsvn_client/export.c
   (svn_client_export3): Return error for nonexistent URL.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/export_tests.py
   (export_nonexistent_url): New function.
   (test_list): Add new test.
