SVN revision check in Special:Version fails on SVN 1.4 working copy
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The .svn/entries file format has changed from clean XML to some weird line-based
fixed-size format, and the revision number can't be extracted.

Could switch to using the 'svnversion' helper program if present, but may not be
reliable (chroot, non-standard directory, different versions present, or just missing
because the checkout was made on another machine).

Good to figure out the new format, if it's consistent or documented. Sigh.

Version: 1.8.x
Severity: minor
