Subversion 1.5 issues blocking RC1

I thought it would be useful to start a new thread where we can gather
a sort of to-do list of things we need to look at before we can make
the RC1. We did a lot of work yesterday to get close to the release,
but there are still some things left to do.

1) Clean out STATUS. Hyrum pointed this out. Basically, there were a
couple of items discovered yesterday that got fixed late and added to
STATUS. Getting them approved for backport should be trivial but
still needs to be done.

2) Mergeinfo API.

a) As Bert and Stefan have pointed out, the new API can be pretty
slow. The new API is good, they just have a valid case for leaving
the "old" API in place rather than remove it. I have to say we had a
few instances in the JavaHL tests where it the old API was more
appropriate. For example, sometimes you just want to check that there
is mergeinfo, you do not care so much about the details. The log
based approach is too heavy for this.

b) Likely bug in the new API. It appears that the new API only works
when TARGET is a WC. The old API also supported a URL. We had to
change the JavaHL tests because of this. At the time, I thought this
was OK, but now realize it is probably a bug. If nothing else, the
error message has to be better.

Mike Pilato, can you look at these?

3) Reintegrate bugs. David Glasser pointed out a couple of small bugs
that need to be fixed when using reintegrate.
I think we probably need to put the --force option back into the API
so that it can pass it along to the merge API it eventually calls.

Julian, since you removed force, could you look at these?

4) Reintegrate "overhaul". David Glasser also has proposed some
significant changes to the API.
Given that there is no one available to code these changes, I am in
favor of punting this to 1.6.


5) Stefan pointed out a regression when checking out the repository root.

It looks like Lieven is looking into this.

6) I think I found a bug in log -g when the item has been renamed:
I think we could fix this later, but it needs to be looked at.

Hyrum, do you have any time to look at this?

I think restoring and fixing the mergeinfo API is probably the biggest
blocker on this list, especially since it bleeds into the bindings
which need to catch up. Hopefully we can tackle this list quickly and
get the RC1 wrapped up.
