gnome-colors bazaar code import fails

Asked by Benjamin Drung

The bazaar import for gnome-colors [1] fails. After some time it dies because of a timeout or connection problem. The last tries died after 200 minutes.

There is a regularity (for the last four tries): The import dies after exactly 200 minutes and the last warning printed was:
2009-07-31 17:21:23 WARNING ignored change outside branch: action=D path=u'/gnome-colors' copyfrom_revision=None copyfrom_path=None

The real kicker in the error log is this one:

PROPFIND of '/svn/shiki-colors/Shiki-Colors%20Metacity/xfwm4': 502 Bad Gateway (

We see this a lot with Google Code. It seems that their servers disconnect sometimes, and we don't currently do a very good job at reconnecting. There is an open bug about this that I'll link to this question.

I tried to import gnome-colors again. This time there is no "502 Bad Gateway" error in the log. It simply fails with:

Import failed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
Failure: twisted.internet.error.TimeoutError: User timeout caused connection failure.
