Is it possible to access SVN revision numbers instead of bzr ones ?

Asked by Mildred on 2008-01-19


I'm using bzr-svn and many thanks for the authors of this plugin ... It saves me hours (after hours trying to do a simple merge in subversion)

So, is it possible to access SVN revision numbers ? For example using something like:
bzr log -r svn:143
would display the log entry for the SVN revision 143. Actually when I try that, I have the message:
“bzr: ERROR: the svn: revisionspec can only be used with Subversion branches”
But it *is* a subversion branch. That is a branch imported using “bzr co svn+ssh://...”

Also, would it be possible to display the svn revision number in each entry when using te command “bzr log” ?

Thanks for the answer

A branch created using "bzr co svn+ssh://..." is a bzr branch, created from a Subversion branch. the svn: specifier only works with actual Subversion branches at the moment (e.g. bzr log -rsvn:143 svn+ssh://...).

The main reason "svn:" doesn't work on Bazaar branches at the moment is that it is possible to have a bazaar branch that contains revisions from more than one Subversion branch. It would also require additional metadata to be stored when importing data from a branch in Subversion.

Thanks Jelmer Vernooij, that solved my question.

Thanks, I just didn't see how my branch was not a subversion branch ... Now I understand, thanks
