Re: fails to convert bdb to fsfs

Garrett Rooney,

    I retried again just now. Now I have more information.

    I splited the dump file in two parts, the first one is from rev 0
to rev 10909, the other is from rev 10910 to the end. I did this
because I knew it is the the rev 10910 that had failed. ( I use
'--incremental' option of svnadmin to create the 2nd dumpfile)

   I ran "svnadmin load" on the first dumpfile, all was OK. And for
the 2nd dumpfile, svnadmin reported:

svnadmin: File not found: transaction '10909-3', path 'products/xy2/design/?\230

Note: in fact, this message was from the 3rd time that I retried the
svnadmin load command. so there is '3' in message: '10909-3'.

And you can see, the path contains some special chars, that is
Chinese. We have other repositories containing Chinese file/dir names.
But converting these repositories was successful. And the revisions
before 10909 already contain many other Chinese file/dir names.

There is some trouble to display Chinese char in my Unix term. When I
am back in office, I will try to use windows to find more info about
that revision.
