RE: [Bug] svn export -r <rev> of single file fails if there is a newer revision available than the exported one

The -r123 and @123 functions have completely different behavior.


The @ syntax looks up the url as it was in in revision r123 and fetches the file from there

The -r checks the path as it currently exists, back to the path it had in revision 123… following copies, renames, etc.

(Note: you can combine these functions to trace a url backwards starting with a specific revision)


So this is most likely the completely documented behavior. See the Subversion book on <http://svnbook.red-bean.com> http://svnbook.red-bean.com

Subject: [Bug] svn export -r <rev> of single file fails if there is a newer revision available than the exported one


SVN server: V1.8.14 (r1692801)




When trying to export a dedicated file of a special revision by using

# svn export –r <revision> https://svn-server/trunk/myfile.txt

everything is working fine as long as no newer revision of this file is available in the repository.


If a newer revision is available on the server, the following error message is returned:

                svn: E195012: Unable to find repository location for <myfile> in revision <revision>


The “@syntax” is working fine:

# svn export https://svn-server/trunk/myfile.txt@ <https://svnserver/trunk/myfile.txt@%3crevision> <revision>


Is this an already known bug of SVN or perhaps an undocumented feature?


Thanks and best regards
