This is a plea for the dev team to reconsider. I have been able to
build an entire svn repository browser, http://svn.may.be/ , built
around only the repository and dav_svn. As I create a new svn repostory
it appears automatically in the list and all the functions work on it.
The problem is that, in order to work, I have to make the patch to the
source on each release. It's only a two-liner but it shouldn't be
necessary. The patch I use is to add the following lines after getting
the repo_name in repos.c.
if (repo_name == NULL)
repo_name = repos_name;
It was posted at
I take Max's point that this can be fixed by editing the httpd.conf file
(or one included) but this takes away the ability to add a new
repository with just svnadmin create.
If you don't like the fix above, a number of other suggestions have been
made. Perhaps SVNReposName "%s" or an entirely new directive?
Please reconsider this problem. I'm happy to do the work for whatever
scheme you select.
