In TSVN I'm using the API svn_config_walk_auth_data(). Unfortunately,
I'm passing NULL as the first parameter (the config dir path).
Back when I implemented this, passing NULL worked just fine. Now it
doesn't anymore - I forgot to test this with the 1.8.0 release, my fault.
The reason that passing NULL doesn't work are these few lines right at
the beginning of svn_config_walk_auth_data:
if (! config_dir)
/* Can't locate the cache to clear */
my question is: why?
Because if that check is removed, passing NULL works just fine because
all the other APIs where the config dir is passed as a parameter then
just find the default config dir path themselves. Why doesn't
Sure, I could use the Windows API to determine the default config path
myself, but that means I would have to make an assumption about where
that path is - meaning if the svn lib ever changes that I would have to
change it as well. In my opinion, svn knows best where it stores the
config data by default and should act accordingly.
May I suggest to remove the check mentioned above? Simply removing it is
enough to make this work: passing NULL as the config dir path would then
mean to use the default, just in the other svn APIs that take the config
dir path as a parameter.
