RE: [PATCH v2] Reject checkouts to existing directory
Date: Fri, 28 Oct 2016 02:49:04 +0200
Just checking the log message: This changes 90% of our testsuite to use ‘svn co --force’, by changing the standard checkout function in actions.py that is used by virtual all tests.
If that is really necessary I would call this a breaking change.
It also changes a few of the most core basic tests… That tells me that some very common usecases will change.
If we have to change the behavior of 90% of our tests for this, I don’t think we can just commit it as any basic minor test.
In the summary I don’t see the support for restartability of a broken checkout. See the documentation of svn checkout in the svn-book. (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.ref.svn.c.checkout.html)
Which would require me to update dozens of buildscripts that worked just fine since 1.0, if released.
