Re: SVN "control" dirs showing up to repo clients

Hi Everyone,

Figured this one out I think. I got a bit suspicious when I noticed
that our other repos don't exhibit this behavior and, as you will see in
a moment, there are no revisions shown in db/revs. I had a hunch that
paid off -- check it out:

jbarrett_at_firefly:~:0>svn log -v -r 290 https://firefly/svnrepos/general
r290 | jdufour | 2006-02-28 08:45:04 -0800 (Tue, 28 Feb 2006) | 1 line
Changed paths:
    A /README.txt
    A /conf
    A /conf/authz
    A /conf/passwd
    A /conf/svnserve.conf
    A /dav
    A /db
    A /db/current
    A /db/format
    A /db/fs-type
    A /db/revprops
    A /db/revprops/0
    A /db/revs
    A /db/revs/0
    A /db/transactions
    A /db/uuid
    A /db/write-lock
    A /format
    A /hooks
    A /hooks/post-commit.tmpl
    A /hooks/post-lock.tmpl
    A /hooks/post-revprop-change.tmpl
    A /hooks/post-unlock.tmpl
    A /hooks/pre-commit.tmpl
    A /hooks/pre-lock.tmpl
    A /hooks/pre-revprop-change.tmpl
    A /hooks/pre-unlock.tmpl
    A /hooks/start-commit.tmpl
    A /locks
    A /locks/db-logs.lock
    A /locks/db.lock


I have no idea how he managed to do this. He doesn't have console
access to the machine the repo lives on so I don't know where he would
have gotten these dirs to commit to the repo in the first place. I've
deleted the directories. If you have any thoughts as to how he did
this, I'd love to know.

Thanks for the help anyway :)
