Subject RE: Problem with adding files in SVN 1.8.0+. Is it in the tracker already?
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2013 16:12:55 GMT
I think I found a bug causing your specific problems in 'serf', Subversions
new default http library.

 

The problem doesn't appear to affect Subversion users unless the server
closes connections aggressively. 'HEAD' requests (as requests without a
body) don't trigger the authentication subsystem. The 401 from the HEAD
request as shown in your log file is assumed to be a 'file exists' status.

 

A patch is available on the serf development list. I assume it (or a similar
patch) will be included in the next serf version.

I'll just reply in the html form as it will be very hard to convert this
thread to plain ascii and I have better things to do than spending half an
hour on that.

 

The information in your e-mail says that you can reproduce it on your
working copy; and then Philip Martin says he can't reproduce it.

 

I looked through your apache log (attached in yet another followup) and
noticed that about every request first fails with a 401 error and then later
succeeds.

 

What authentication configuration does your apache use?

 

NTLM/Digest/Basic, with what backend.

What is the maximum number of requests per connection?

 

Can you send us your apache config (with sensitive information replaced by
dummy information of course)

 

Thanks,

                Bert

Hi Bert,

                No,

 

There is no issue for this specific part of those threads created as nobody
was able to produce a reproduction recipe for this problem to the developers
yet. 

Surely it would be useful to add the issue report anyway, even if there is
no easy way to reproduce it.  After all, it is a known issue now.  We can
then work on the reproduction recipe.

 

All the threads you quoted end with this request. So unless you add a way to
reproduce the problem (perhaps with the help of the earlier reporters) to
the discussion there is not much we can do for you at this time/

I'm sure I postedthe method for me to reproduce it.    We were running a
1.2.3 server served by Apache 2.0.54 on Windows Server 2003 SP2.  I was then
using a 1.8.1 client on Windows 7 Pro 32-bit.  I thought I'd posted my
recipe here:

 

 <http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2013-08/0035.shtml>
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2013-08/0035.shtml

However, this is NOT the full recipe. Instead, look at this post:

 <http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2013-08/0140.shtml>
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2013-08/0140.shtml

That contains the steps I took to reliably produce errors with the
server/client setup we had.  Unlike most of our repositories, the Playground
repo has always been FSFS.  The problem happened with our BDB repos as well.

The problem doesn't reproduce with the currently supported versions, nor
with the older versions we tried to setup specifically to trigger the
problem quoted here.

But it's easily reproduced here, and obviously is at other sites too.

 

Do you see the problem in all working copies, or just in certain scenarios?
(E.g. multiple levels of added directories? Mixed revision copies? Etc.
etc.)

I saw itin nearly every case.  There were rare occasions when the add/commit
would just work, but in the majority of cases it would fail.

Hello,

 

There seems to be a problem with the TortoiseSVN1.8.0+, which returns a
server conflict when a new file is attempted to be added. We observed the
problem only when adding files to the server running SVN1.5.5. No problems
were observed when adding files to our second server, running SVN 1.7.x.
There are further posts about this issue on the Internet, such as
<https://groups.google.com/d/topic/tortoisesvn/cGoClRBMCPc/discussion>

https://groups.google.com/d/msg/tortoisesvn/NggY3JzVJIY/gdEklFV2vLgJ

 

Is this issue already in the Subversion tracker (
<http://subversion.apache.org/reporting-issues.html>
http://subversion.apache.org/reporting-issues.html)? If yes, could you
please tell me the issue number

 

Kind regards
