Re: svnsync sync is failing

svnsync failures don't get much response around here. Internet searches
show that the problem has existed for several years. Possibly most users
don't trigger this bug. It occurs when the revision data exceeds
20Mbytes or so. The commits that software developers make are unlikely
to be that large.

Perhaps I can offer a workaround.

In my case, the error message says "invalid chunk delimiter", but
otherwise sounds similar. For the revision that failed (the last one
reported as committed, plus one), I execute svnadmin dump on the Master
machine to produce a dump file, like this:

svnadmin dump <repos-path> -r <failed_rev_number> --incremental --deltas
> dumpfile

I copy dumpfile to the Slave machine and use svnadmin load to commit it
to the mirror repository, like this:

svnadmin load <repos-path> --ignore-uuid < dumpfile

Lastly, I edit the Slave repository's Rev 0 properties in
<repo>/db/revprops/0 ("<-- " are my comments):

K 17
svn:sync-currently-copying
V 4 <--match the number of chars on next line
1075 <-- set to next rev, if problem, set to last
...
K 24
svn:sync-last-merged-rev
V 4 <-- match the number of chars on next line>
1074 <-- set to last rev

The subsequent svnsync sync operation will work normally, unless it
encounters another large revision that triggers another chunk delimiter
error.

I hope this might be useful.
