Subject Using SVN with cron?
Date Sun, 06 Mar 2011 19:35:55 GMT
I've been struggling all morning with what should be a very simple problem.

I would like to commit and update a svn repository daily using cron. I've 
encapsulated my svn calls into a perl script, which runs the following

----
#!/usr/bin/perl

print "To run svn commit\n";
$thetime=time;

system "cd ~/docs; /usr/bin/svn commit --message '$thetime' \n";
system "cd ~/docs; /usr/bin/svn info \n";
----

The whole thing is >> to a file in my /tmp directory for monitoring. 

The script works fine if I run it manually. 

In the monitoring file, I see the correct output from svn info after the 
cronjob, but it looks like the "svn commit" never runs. I don't see any output 
from it and the revision never changes.

----
To run svn commit
Path: .
URL: svn://xxremoved
Repository Root: svn://xxremoved
Repository UUID: xxremoved
Revision: 487
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Rev: 487
Last Changed Date: 2011-03-06 04:42:01 -0800 (Sun, 06 Mar 2011)
----

(I do have some file changes there to force a commit)

Does anyone know why svn info would work while svn commit would not?

Thanks, 
- Jonathan
