RE: Bug in "svn ls"

Ah - interesting! Though I must say it is a little weird to cut a
username off at 8 chars. Seems rather short for a large organization of

Especially odd since I'm using the --verbose option! It kind of begs
for a --reallyverbose option! However, what I'd *really* rather see is
a --xml option like "svn log" has. I think it would make for a more
orthogonal/consistent command set & is a very nice feature when you want
to wrap the svn command up in a larger build system.

BTW, thanks for the link to the SSPI "fix". We will check that out. It
may solve our problem & we really don't like/need the domain to show up
anyway. However, (since I'm on a roll) what I'd *really* rather see is
support for Windows Domain authentication when using the svn://
protocol! :)

columns, and cuts the username off at eight characters. Apparently the
Subversion team put emphasis on wanting to ensure each line of "svn
status" took up less than 80 characters, whereas the sams isn't true of
"svn log".

You should try the special SSPI module available at
http://www.deadbeef.com/software/sspi.html -- it offers an additional
setting, "SSPIOmitDomain", which will remove the domain name and
backslash from the stored username when using a Windows Domain for
