Thanks for checking - we want to be fully compatible so any information
like this helps.

The checkout URL is the same as the HTTP clone URL, and the .git suffix is
optional for both git and svn clients.

I may have misunderstood what's up with the ra_serf library, I thought that
was related to HTTP protocol changes introduced in 1.7 and that 1.7 clients
would fall back to old behavior for <1.7 servers. I'll read up on this, if
you have any pointers to documentation related to ra_serf that would be

I'm seeing this XML (sans txdelta) in a debug session with a copy of that

<S:add-file name="packages.config" >

    <S:set-prop name="svn:entry:committed-rev">25</S:set-prop>
    <S:set-prop name="svn:entry:last-author">anglicangeek</S:set-prop>


It's possible that production is returning something different, I'll look

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public
relations, for nature cannot be fooled.
