[PATCH] svnserve: write pid a bit earlier?

From: David Glasser <glasser_at_davidglasser.net>
Date: 2007-10-13 00:05:23 CEST

So one of my test scripts essentially does

  svnserve -d -r bla --pid-file .svnserve-pid
  spid=`cat .svnserve-pid`
  run some tests
  kill -9 $spid

... except that sometimes the shell manages to cat the PID file before
it's written. Any reason not to apply the attached patch? (Like, the
proc detach doesn't change the PID or anything weird like that,


* subversion/svnserve/main.c
  (main): Write the PID file before detaching, so that the process
that runs svnserve
   can read it immediately.
