Re: [again] mod_authz_svn, mixed configuration, (no author) problem

Well, I thought it was fixed, but it doesn't appear to be. I have more
information now.

I updated both the client and the server to 1.0.2, and experienced the
problem. I performed the following test on the server machine, to
ensure the various binaries for both client and server came from the
same installation package.

1. Login to Windows as a user that doesn't have a Subversion
authentication cache (I assume deleting the cache works as well).
2. svn co http://path/to/my/repos/and/project/dir
# Server retrieves files
3. cd <project dir>
4. <create myfile.txt>
5. svn add myfile.txt
# Server correctly challenges for password
6. Type in correct password
# Commit succeeds.
7. svn log myfile.txt
# (no author) listed as the file's author

I looked at issue 1786. It seems to deal with multiple authors. I'm
not familiar enough with the internals of subversion to be sure that my
issue is related, but I think it could be. The only way I can think of
"multiple" authors being involved with this is *IF* it counts the
'checkout' as being done by one author [(no author)] and the 'commit'
being done by another [tims]. In that case, the (no author) should lose
to any authenticated author, right? But what-do-I-know, I haven't read
enough source yet... :-)

Here's the output (with URL and dir cleaned up a bit) of the procedure I
described above:

My server configuration info can be found in my original email here:


Thanks a ton!
