Re: The case of the disappearing project

You should be able to simply do a "svn log -v" on the root of the Subversion
repository, and sooner or later turn up a path to the project. You have to
make sure you start with the root of the repository, or else you could miss
something. Copies, deletes, and renames of directories or files can produce
two files or directories with the same name located in the same directory,
but are actually two different objects in Subversion, and thus won't be
listed in the Subversion log. By going from the repository root, you'll see
everything that happened.

Another possibility is to use revision pegging. That will give you the
repository on a particular date. For example, if you know that the project
was around on May 1, you could do something like this (Assuming your
repository structure is like this and your project was named "foo":

    $ svn log -v http://subversion/svn/projects/foo@'{2009-05-01}'

That should give you a log of that project as your repository looked on May
1, 2009. If the project was deleted after May 1, this will show you when and
who deleted it.
