Thanks for reading my long email.
I have start-commit working OK on mirror, it's exactly the same as in
the mentioned example, nothing fancy. In other words, my setup is nearly
On master I can commit, on mirror, I presume I couldn't, but I haven't
even tried. Once commiting on master, post-commit kicks off and executes
svnsync with --source-username svnsync --sync-username svnsync
credentials. It's over authorized SSH, so passwords are not necessary.
I presumed, that these credentials are effective on mirror and when the
sync happens, respective pre-revprop-change kicks off and allows svnsync
user in. Unfortunately, the hook exits 1, because it thinks that the
username is me! I did originally commit to the master, but the
post-commit sync transaction should not use my credentials any more, but
the svnsync user as specified literally. It does not even come close to
start-commit hook, because sync cannot obtain repo lock obviously.
This is the problem. I still can't figure out how the synchronisation
uses my username ($3 == 'rz' on mirror!), when I told it to use svnsync
In effect all commits work, but the sync does not. Only svnsync user can
commit and successfully post-commit synchronise, obviously. It must be
something simple... Any ideas where to look?
