Speno's Pythonic Avocado 17.10.2004


Making subversion more like Python

I switched to using subversion for version control at work. So far, so good. However, as a python programmer, there was one obvious missing feature. The --reversion (or -r) argument already takes two revision numbers seperated by a colon to indicate a start and end revision to apply the command to (e.g. svn log -r 5:14), but it doesn't let you leave either the start or end field empty (e.g. svn log -r :10). Maybe it's just me, but I keep wanting to do that. To be fair, you can do it using the symbolic names of BASE or HEAD in the right place.

I filed subversion: Issue 2100 on it. It's a trivial fix, I'm sure, and I even took a look at doing it myself. My brain rebuffed me. Thanks, brain!

Take care.

One python programmer's search for understanding and avocados. This isn't personal, only pythonic.
