Hi Bill,

Please use "reply all" to keep the mailinglist in cc, so others can
help as well.
And as I said before, we prefer "bottom-posting" on this list, or
inline replying (if at all possible). Anyway, some more info below ...

For context, I'm pasting the error messages from the previous mail:

    [Thu Jan 18 18:59:47.799933 2018] Could not MERGE resource

Good thing that you reproduced it on a new, clean repository. This new
repository is on a similar environment, with the same SVN server

Since you mentioned that the error only occurs if the total size of
the commit gets large, the first suspect is the back-end filesystem. I
think SVN internally has no (practical) limit on the total size of the
commit. But in the end a commit becomes a single "rev" file on the
back-end. The size of that rev file depends on the incoming files, and
compression and deltification that the server applies.

In the error message above that back-end filesystem is on
'/var/lib/svn/0_IT_test/Bill/db'. If you take a look there, you'll see
directories 'revs', 'transactions', 'txn-protorevs', ... Is there a
maximum file size limit on the level of the filesystem there? Is there
enough diskspace? Is there anything special with the way you set
things up? Are these local filesystems, or networked filesystems
connected via NFS or SMB? Did you perhaps mount 'revs' and
'transactions' from different filesystems? Any special write-caching
options that could be playing a role here? ... Those are all potential
areas for further investigation.
