Arc diff failing to generate diff with svn 1.9.3
Open, Needs TriagePublic


svn propget throws an error if the property doesn't exist, which has caused Arcanist to stop working for us after a recent upgrade to svn 1.9.3 (I believe 1.8 returns with no output)

Reproduced by:
svn mv <file> <file>_2
arc diff --only

"svn: warning: W200017: Property 'svn:mime-type' not found on '<file>@'
svn: E200000: A problem occurred; see other errors for details
#2 ArcanistSubversionAPI::getSVNProperty(string, string) called at [<arcanist>/src/repository/api/ArcanistSubversionAPI.php:454

Running with head libphutil/arcanist/phabricator

Event Timeline

I am also affected. Is there any known workaround?

My workaround for arcanist:

diff --git a/src/repository/api/ArcanistSubversionAPI.php b/src/repository/api/ArcanistSubversionAPI.php
index 887fa4f..3f8ca98 100644
--- a/src/repository/api/ArcanistSubversionAPI.php
+++ b/src/repository/api/ArcanistSubversionAPI.php

     list($stdout) = execx(

+      'svn propget %s %s@ ; exit 0',
     return trim($stdout);

Tested with:

on Ubuntu Linux with svn Version 1.9.3

@epriestley can you have a look at this, please?

I am getting the same error with

I can confirm that sreschke80's workaround worked for me.

@epriestley - is this something slotted for being fixed?
