Wow, this is surprising.

If i think back to when we moved to Subversion, i remember how always it was to do these long urls. In CVS, there was defined a CVSROOT that handled any pathing like hostname or local directory. We found the typing in a URL to be error prone. To minimize error we wanted to minimize the size of the url and what you're saying is: that case isn't even regularly tested?Ben Reser <ben_at_reser.org> wrote:

ServerRoot.  There are all sorts of edge case bugs that have come up over the
years when doing that.  I have no doubt there will be other bugs in the future
related to this.  Our test suite does not test this scenario.

For example there was this situation not that long ago:
