== [svn] Better REPLACE support ==

Imports that have failed and that need better support for replaced files.

 * https://launchpad.net/products/wormux/0.7 [[BR]]
   * On changeset 865 [[BR]]
   change: action = 'R', old kind = <node_kind.dir>, new kind = <node_kind.dir> [[BR]]
   RuntimeError: only replacing a file by a file is implemented

== [svn] Partial copy ==

Current cscvs in production does not correctly handle revisions that combine a copy (that is 'A' or 'R' action with copyfrom set) with a simultaneous delete ('D' or 'R' action) in a path below the copy.

A new changeset generation logic that fixes this issue has been implemented and is currently undergoing review. When the code review and fixage has been completed, those import will be re-run and are expected to succeed.

Imports that failed to do REPORT on a path with a bang. I do not know what that means, but there's clearly a pattern.

This page tracks requests for actions from the vcs-imports operator.

To request an import, please:

  • Create a product in Launchpad and set the source details to the CVS or Subversion repository you wish to have imported. In particular
  • Add a request on this page, with the name of your launchpad account so I can find your email.

Note that we only do imports of MAIN branches on CVS (the form will have to be updated to remove the "branch" field) and trunk branches on Subversion.

We will handle your request and keep you informed of progress or issues. You can contact the vcs-imports operator: ddaa in #launchpad on irc.freenode.net.

Template to request an import:

  • [@DATE@]

Imports that are currently failing, and for which no fix is currently being worked on.

[svn] missing uri-encoding

cscvs uses the svn_client API to libsvn to retrieve data (on Date(2006-11-09T14:31:29Z)), but does not correctly uri-encode locations. So file names that contain characters that must be escaped cause import failures.

[cvs] failed to open the modules file

cscvs needs to read the modules file to ignore configs (aka externals, nested trees).

$ cvs -d :pserver:guest:guest@mozdev.org:/cvs co -c
cvs [checkout aborted]: failed to open the modules file

[svn] svn:externals

[svn] Cannot import whole repository

The svn import code fails at processing imports at the root of a svn repository. Some repository are set up that way, with the actual root containing the source code. That's broken, but people actually do this.


[cvs] None branch in findLastFileRevision

While creating changesets: assertion error, branchName is None in findLastFileRevision CVS/CacheGenerator.py:160

It looks like it means something is really busted with filler revisions and default branches.

File name not supported by bzr

Unknown failures

  • nobody: https://launchpad.net/products/xrms/trunk BR :pserver:anonymous@xrms.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/xrms/ xrms BR [Date(2006-09-29T21:20:41Z)]

    • on changeset MAIN.4167: BR CRITICAL: requested checkout of reporoot '/cvsroot/xrms', file 'xrms/include/adodb/pear/Attic/readme.Auth.txt', revision '' BR CRITICAL: log of checkout responses follow. BR CRITICAL: "E cvs checkout: cannot find module BR `xrms/include/adodb/pear/Attic/readme.Auth.txt' - ignored\n" BR CRITICAL: 'error \n'

    • cscvs wants to create a filler changeset 1.1-> for include/adodb/pear/readme.Auth.txt, but there is no revision for that file. The cvs rlog shows revision 1.1 (branches: 1.1.1) used in changeset MAIN.915, revision, not used by cscvs. The cvs log header for that file reads "head: 1.1" and "branch: 1.1.1".

lifeless suggests:

(15:28:25) lifeless: I'd do a search in the file revision table for that file, all revisions, see what cscvs is thinking happened to it
(15:29:45) ddaa: you suggest it might be a problem in the log parser and checking the catalog contents would help narrowing the cause of the problem?
(15:33:11) lifeless: something is inventing the .2
(15:33:22) lifeless: if its in the catalog then the catalog generator can be checked
(15:33:42) lifeless: if its not in the catalog then the application-of-changesets can be checked
(15:33:45) lifeless: it will narrow it down
(15:34:03) lifeless: As its a very small rlog I'd make a test case from it

Failed to fork, memory error

Some large imports fail to os.fork() (when spawning gpg to sign a revision) with "OSError: [Errno 12] Cannot allocate memory". It's not clear why that happen, since Linux should overcommit memory up to 50x (the value of /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_ratio) and allow large processes like cscvs to spawn small processes like gpg.

Fix in progress

Failures for which a fix is currently being worked on.
