Re: [PATCH] 1.5.x branch: python/cmdline

Sorry, here it is

Add a number of SVNKit related fixes to main.py

Recently SVNKit developers have started to use client/server approach
for running Subversion python tests suite against SVNKit Subversion
library. They use a server that accepts Subversion commands through the
TCP/IP socket and a client which is a bash script - it reads parameters,
stdin, certain environment variables and then sends everything to the

To send data to the server netcat program is used or, alternatively,
bash /dev/tcp/host/port device. In both case complete stdin have to be
read before sending data to the server. However, main.py doesn't close
stdin of the launched process before launching another process (in
particular when running svnadmin dump repos1 | svnadmin load repos2
commands). As a result the tests were entering a deadlock. Suggested
patch doesn't change anything in tests behavior with native Subversion -
it just closes stdin of the launched process as soon as no more data is
about to be sent to the process stdin.

Another modification included into this patch is setting
SVN_CURRENT_TEST environment variable before running certain test. This
allows SVNKit testing daemon to track what test is currently running
when the whole test suite is launched (i.e. "./copy.py" without
specifying exact test number to run).

Finally, svndumpfilter_binary should point to a jsvndumpfilter binary if
--use-jsvn is specified.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/svntest/main.py
   (def copy_repos): close dump_in just after the first call to open_pipe()
   (def run): set SVN_CURRENT_TEST environment variable to the current
test being run
   (def run_tests): make svndumpfilter_binary point to jsvndumpfilter
binary if --use-jsvn is specified
