Asked by Pascal de Lorenzo on 2009-09-24

Hi,

Just wanted to know if the latest svn libs v1.6.5 will be integrated into bzr v2.0.0 win32 installer?

If not, when do you plan to do it?

Thanks a lot.

Pascal

We are still using the 1.5 libs.

We have been discussing when to update. The main problem is that if you
upgrade bzr-svn to 1.6 then it will auto-upgrade the users' working
trees to 1.6, even if their *svn* clients are not upgraded yet. It is a
bit abusive to have someone install bzr to test it out, and then find
out that their svn client no longer works.

That said, I think we should do it soon. Probably for the 2.1 branch,
see how it goes, and then think about doing it for a 2.0.x version.

Thanks a lot John for your quick answer.

There still another way to make happy everyone:

let package all the plugins needed to make svn work (bzr-svn, rebase, subverty...) but let's user install/use it's own version of Subversion... Isn't it possible? I think it is, but don't know how much work it already takes.

Thinking of it it could be a good way of doing things.

What do you think of it?

Again, thanks a lot for your attention.

bzr-svn is built directly on the subversion bindings, and makes use of
bits from libapr etc. And as I understand it 'libapr' is 'leaky', in
that you have to build against a specific version of it (2.2 vs 2.4??)

IMO a better solution would be to not bundle bzr-svn, but make it as an
easy extension you could download and install, and then pick your lib
versions at that time.

Or potentially build both and bundle them, and give the user the option
to pick which one they want at install time. My install-fu isn't that
strong, though.

Thanks John.

Your idea sounds pretty good.

Well now, how can we suggest this to people in charge of this work and get there view on it?

That discussion is already linked to a bug, so nothing is needed, all parties involved are already aware of the issues.

Thank you all for your help.
