What is a really simple “how to” to do branching and merging using TortoiseSVN?

Will TortoiseSVN 1.7 work properly against a SVN 1.6 repository?

I would like to upgrade my TortoiseSVN installation to version 1.7. We have a VisualSVN server running with a SVN 1.6 repository. Do I need to upgrade the repository to 1.7 before I can update my client, or is TortoiseSVN backwards compatible? I know that during the upgrade from TortoiseSVN 1.6 to 1.7, I need […]

List all svn:externals recursively?

How can I get a list of all svn:externals (recursively) in a directory? Is there any utility for this? (I’m using Windows (and tortoise)) I have a bunch of svn:externals linking to different shared parts of my project and I when I branch it’s usually quite error prone to find all externals and changed them […]

Is there a way to turn TortoiseSVN using svn:mergeinfo off?

When I’m doing a TortoiseSVN merge, it includes a bunch of directories, and some files into the modified files, even though there are no actual changes. It changes the property svn:mergeinfo.

On further investigation the property changes are mergeinfo properties. I wouldn’t expect this […]

Windows Pre-commit hook for comment length Subversion

I seem to be getting nowhere with this. Either searching the web for a script, etc. Anyone got a script that you can just edit the out-of-box pre-commit.tmpl in a Windows environment that requires x chars to be entered in for a comment on commit in Tortoise Subversion globally so that all members on the […]

How do I change the default author for accessing a local SVN repository?

I use TortoiseSVN to access file based local repo. In all my commits an author is my Windows login name. Is it possible to use different name? I know how to change author after commit but how to change before? Installing apache/svnserver is not an option.

Updating from svn repository returns “Could not read chunk size” error

When updating from subversion repository using tortoise svn client I get error looking like that: Could not read chunk size: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. It doesn’t prevent me from updating, just interrupts update process, so that I have to repeat update several times, before it is complete. What can […]

Unable to do an SVN dump — Error E720002 and format errors
