  • svnsync: pre-revprop-change hook not recognized (svn 1.7.14)

    (svn 1.7.14 on RHEL7.4)
    Trying to sync my source-repo to a target-repo causes the (well know) error: [INDENT]# svnsync initialize file:///icd_repos_local/icd_tech file:///icd_repos/icd_backup_repos/icd_tech/
    svnsync: E165006: Repository has not been enabled to accept revision propchanges;
    ask the administrator to create a pre-revprop-change hook[/INDENT]

    Of course I then did:[INDENT]cd /icd_repos/icd_backup_repos/icd_tech/hooks
    mv pre-revprop-change.tmpl pre-revprop-change
    chmod 777 pre-revprop-change[/INDENT]

    But still not working, same error.

    Why does svn not recognize my "live" hook ?

    The content of "pre-revprop-change" is (I modified it for "exit 0" only):[INDENT]# cat pre-revprop-change
    #!/bin/sh

    # PRE-REVPROP-CHANGE HOOK
    #
    # The pre-revprop-change hook is invoked before a revision property
    # is added, modified or deleted. Subversion runs this hook by invoking
    # a program (script, executable, binary, etc.) named 'pre-revprop-change'
    # (for which this file is a template), with the following ordered
    # arguments:
    #
    # [1] REPOS-PATH (the path to this repository)
    # [2] REV (the revision being tweaked)
    # [3] USER (the username of the person tweaking the property)
    # [4] PROPNAME (the property being set on the revision)
    # [5] ACTION (the property is being 'A'dded, 'M'odified, or 'D'eleted)
    #
    # [STDIN] PROPVAL ** the new property value is passed via STDIN.
    #
    # If the hook program exits with success, the propchange happens; but
    # if it exits with failure (non-zero), the propchange doesn't happen.
    # The hook program can use the 'svnlook' utility to examine the
    # existing value of the revision property.
    #
    # WARNING: unlike other hooks, this hook MUST exist for revision
    # properties to be changed. If the hook does not exist, Subversion
    # will behave as if the hook were present, but failed. The reason
    # for this is that revision properties are UNVERSIONED, meaning that
    # a successful propchange is destructive; the old value is gone
    # forever. We recommend the hook back up the old value somewhere.
    #
    # On a Unix system, the normal procedure is to have 'pre-revprop-change'
    # invoke other programs to do the real work, though it may do the
    # work itself too.
    #
    # Note that 'pre-revprop-change' must be executable by the user(s) who will
    # invoke it (typically the user httpd runs as), and that user must
    # have filesystem-level permission to access the repository.
    #
    # On a Windows system, you should name the hook program
    # 'pre-revprop-change.bat' or 'pre-revprop-change.exe',
    # but the basic idea is the same.
    #
    # The hook program typically does not inherit the environment of
    # its parent process. For example, a common problem is for the
    # PATH environment variable to not be set to its usual value, so
    # that subprograms fail to launch unless invoked via absolute path.
    # If you're having unexpected problems with a hook program, the
    # culprit may be unusual (or missing) environment variables.
    #
    # Here is an example hook script, for a Unix /bin/sh interpreter.
    # For more examples and pre-written hooks, see those in
    # the Subversion repository at
    # [url]http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/hook-scripts/[/url] and
    # [url]http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/contrib/hook-scripts/[/url]


    #REPOS="$1"
    #REV="$2"
    #USER="$3"
    #PROPNAME="$4"
    #ACTION="$5"

    #if [ "$ACTION" = "M" -a "$PROPNAME" = "svn:log" ]; then exit 0; fi

    #echo "Changing revision properties other than svn:log is prohibited" >&2
    #exit 1

    #This hook exits with 0 to allow svnsync to initialize and sync a repository
    exit 0;[/INDENT]

    The "svnsync" command takes the following arguments:

    svnsync initialize DEST_URL SOURCE_URL

    You've got them reversed.
