Hi Santosh,

Hmmm, I chatted a bit about this on irc with Andreas Stieger. It seems
unlikely that you have a real sha-1 collision in your repository.
Unless someone committed those on purpose (for instance by committing
files from https://shattered.io/). It's also possible that there is
another bug in the "sha-1 collision detection code" (one that doesn't
get bypassed with the -M0 trick).

So, are you sure someone committed such sha-1-colliding files?

Also: the revision where it fails, is that the last revision in the dumpstream?

Something you could try to get further, or to get more information
about what's going on: if you disable rep-sharing SVN should be able
to store the sha-1 collision (you won't be able to check out both
colliding files in a working copy though). So you could 'svnadmin
load' until the revision right before the problematic one, then
disable rep-sharing (putting the option enable-rep-sharing = false in
db/fsfs.conf), then load the problematic revision. Then you might be
able to find out at least the name of the file that's causing the
