RE: Re: svn info doesn't work in pre-commit script

It seems from your email you're trying to get the URL of your repository
in the pre-commit hook. Is that correct? I presume so.


As far as I understand there is no way to do that. I personally have the
URL hard-coded as it's extremely unlikely that it will change. Even if
we move the repository since the hooks are always on the server the URL
is always something like http://localhost/<repo-name
<http://localhost/%3crepo-name> >


Maybe you want the URL so you can use other command to get more
information about the repository and the current commit transaction? In
that case you can use svnlook which provides most (if not all) of the
information you need and it works with the repository path which is
passed to the pre-commit hook, as you know.


Last but not least, remember that all hooks run in an empty environment
so the two parameters passed to the pre-commit hook (repository path and
transaction) are the only two you can use (this to say why the working
copy path is not available to the pre-commit).

Subject: Re: svn info doesn't work in pre-commit script


Thanks for your help. But I have also tried using "svn info" without the
".", but It still doesn't work.

I changed the following in the start-commit:

echo `pwd` >&2
svnurl=`/usr/bin/svn info |grep "^URL: "`
echo "svnurl:$svnurl" >&2

and here is the result:
svn: '.' is not a working copy

but I run "svn commit" at:

somehow, It just cannot recognize the location of the current directory.

does anyone have any idea on this ?

BTW: I tried those 2 arguments in pre-commit, it just gives me the
transaction number and the repository path not my current location.

thanks in advance.

I don't think "svn info" is the problem, it's the ".". Your current
directory is presumably the directory of the pre-commit script. I
doubt that's what you meant.

The pre-commit script gets 2 arguments, try using those.
