Python module for parsing subversion dumpfile

branch: master
README.md

py-svndump

py-svndump is a python module (named svndump) for parsing and altering the output from svnadmin dump before loading it into a repository with svnadmin load.

The reason it exists was that I needed a way to filter out svn:mergeinfo from a huge dump-file before loading it to make the size of the repository smaller.

See parser for a simple skeleton for reading a dump file from standard input and writing it unaltered to standard output.

By adding the following to the for-loop we can change the author for all commits done by "erik" to "erijo" and delete all mergeinfo.

if isinstance(record, RevisionRecord):
    try:
        if record.properties["svn:author"] == "erik":
            record.properties["svn:author"] = "erijo"
    except KeyError:
        assert record.headers[record.REVISION_NUMBER_HEADER] == "0"
elif (isinstance(record, NodeRecord)
      and record.properties is not None):
    try:
        del record.properties["svn:mergeinfo"]
    except KeyError:
        pass
