Re: [PATCH] wc-ng, get node's URL

Sorry, hold this patch.


I'm asking you since you said there may be a duplicate; but it looks like
it's more of a misnomer instead ("get_node_uri"), as Julian pointed out IIRC.

Here is the "duplicate", with improved name:

static svn_error_t*
get_node_base_rev_and_url_components(svn_revnum_t *revision,
                                     const char **repos_relpath,
                                     const char **repos_root_url,
                                     svn_wc__db_t *db,
                                     const char *local_abspath,
                                     apr_pool_t *result_pool,
                                     apr_pool_t *scratch_pool)
  ... svn_wc__db_base_get_info(...

And here what you suggested:

svn_error_t *
svn_wc__internal_node_get_url(const char **url,
                              svn_wc__db_t *db,
                              const char *local_abspath,
                              apr_pool_t *result_pool,
                              apr_pool_t *scratch_pool)
  ... svn_wc__db_read_info(...

So the former returns REVISION, REPOS_RELPATH and REPOS_ROOT_URL, all needed
in check_tree_conflict() to mangle and feed to arguments.
The latter has only the complete URL string in store, no revision.

In the patch of the previous mail, I got the URL separated into
REPOS_RELPATH and REPOS_ROOT_URL, but it turns out I also need a REVISION. I
also need specifically the BASE information, so AFAICT using
svn_wc__db_base_get_info() makes more sense than using svn_wc__db_read_info().

Do you agree that it's no duplicate after all?

BTW, this is how get_node_base_rev_and_url_components() and its return
values would be used in check_tree_conflict(), libsvn_wc/update_editor.c:
      /* Source-left repository root URL and path in repository.
       * The Source-right ones will be the same for update.
       * For switch, only the path in repository will differ, because
       * a cross-repository switch is not possible. */
                                                   &repos_url, eb->db,
                                                   local_abspath, pool,

      src_left_version = svn_wc_conflict_version_create(repos_url,

      /* kind is both base kind and working kind, because schedule
       * replace-by-different-kind is not supported. */
      /* ### TODO: but in case the entry is locally removed, entry->kind
       * is svn_node_none and doesn't reflect the older kind. Then we
       * need to find out the older kind in a different way! */

      /* For switch, find out the proper PATH_IN_REPOS for source-right. */
      if (eb->switch_url != NULL)
          if (their_url != NULL)
            path_in_repos = svn_uri_is_child(repos_url, their_url, pool);
              /* The complete source-right URL is not available, but it
               * is somewhere below the SWITCH_URL. For now, just go
               * without it.
               * ### TODO: Construct a proper THEIR_URL in some of the
               * delete cases that still pass NULL for THEIR_URL when
               * calling this function. Do that on the caller's side. */
              path_in_repos = svn_uri_is_child(repos_url, eb->switch_url,
              path_in_repos = apr_pstrcat(
                                pool, path_in_repos,

      src_right_version = svn_wc_conflict_version_create(repos_url,

        ... src_left_version, src_right_version, ...);
