SvnDumpTool
===========
SvnDumpTool is a tool for processing Subversion dump files (Subversion is a
version control system available from http://subversion.tigris.org/). It's
written in Python (tested with Python 2.4.4 on Linux, though 2.3 should
work fine too).
It has the following commands:
* apply-autoprops apply the auto-props defined in SVN's config
* check check a dump file
* copy copy a dump file
* cvs2svnfix fix a cvs2svn created dump file
* diff show differences between two dump files
* edit edit files in a dump file
* eolfix fix EOL of text files in a dump
* eolfix-revprop fix EOL of revision property
* eolfix-prop fix EOL of node property
* export export files from a dump file
* join join dump files
* log show the log of a dump file
* ls list files of a given revision
* merge merge dump files
* sanitize sanitize dump files
* split split dump files
* transform-revprop transform a revision property
* transform-prop transform a node property
Its homepage is:
http://svn.borg.ch/svndumptool/
Installing
==========
Unpack the tarball, cd into the directory and run the following command:
./setup.py install
Usage
=====
svndumptool.py command [options] [dumpfiles...]
Only Version 2 dump files can be processed with this tool!
(Version 2 dumps are those created without the --deltas option)
Apply-Autoprops
---------------
Applies the automatic properties defined in Subversion's config file.
The value of "enable-auto-props" is ignored and the properties are
always applied.
usage: svndumptool.py apply-autoprops [options] inputdump outputdump
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--config-file=CONFIGFILE
Subversion config file [default:
$HOME/.subversion/config].
Check
-----
Checks a dump file.
svndumptool.py check [options] dumpfiles...
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-a, --check-actions check actions like add/change/delete
-d, --check-dates check that svn:date increases
-m, --check-md5 check md5 sums of the files
-A, --all-checks do all checks
-v, --verbose verbose output
Known bugs:
* cvs2svn created dumps may cause false negatives.
Copy
----
Copies a dump file. Doesn't sound like that makes sense but it's a useful
test of svndump classes (and sometimes it's able to fix broken dump files).
svndumptool.py copy [options] source destination
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
Known bugs:
* None
Cvs2svnfix
----------
Fixes a cvs2svn created dump file. Some (all?) versions of cvs2svn do not
create 100% valid dump files according to Subversion's specification of the
dump file format. It omits the node kind for copied nodes. This command
repairs those nodes.
svndumptool.py cvs2svnfix [options] inputfile outputfile
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
Known bugs:
* None
Diff
----
Shows differences between two Subversion dump files.
svndumptool.py diff [options] dumpfile1 dumpfile2
Options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-e, --check-eol check for EOL differences
-q, --quiet quiet output
-v, --verbose verbose output
-IIGNORES, --ignore=IGNORES
Ignore types of differences. This option can be
specified more than once. Valid types are 'UUID',
'RevNr', 'RevDate', 'RevDateStr', 'NodeCount', 'Path',
'Action', 'Kind', 'CopyFromPath', 'CopyFromRev',
'HasText', 'TextLen', 'TextMD5', 'EOL', 'Text',
'PropDiff', 'PropMissing', 'RevPropDiff' and
'RevPropMissing'
--ignore-revprop=IGNOREREVPROP
ignore a differing/missing revision property
--ignore-property=IGNOREPROPERTY
ignore a differing/missing property
Known bugs:
* cvs2svn created dumps may cause false negatives.
Edit
----
Edits the content of files in a dump by replacing them with the contents of
another file. Also allows properties to be deleted from files.
svndumptool.py edit [options] sourcedump [destinationdump]
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-r REVNR, --revision=REVNR
revision number to edit.
-f FILENAME, --file=FILENAME
filename of repos path to edit.
--replace=REPLACE path of a replacement file.
--propdel=PROPDEL prop name to delete.
-q, --quiet quiet output.
-v, --verbose verbose output.
--dry-run just show what would be done but don't do it.
Known bugs:
* None
Eolfix
------
Textfiles normally contain only one kind of 'end-of-line' characters
(LF, CRLF or CR). This command fixes the EOL's in text files, it converts
all EOL's to LF.
svndumptool.py eolfix [options] sourcedump destinationdump
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-EEOLSTYLE, --eol-style=EOLSTYLE
add svn:eol-style property to text files, the value can
be 'native', 'LF', 'CRLF' or 'CR'
-fFIX, --fix=FIX a comma separated list of what (and how) to fix, can be
a combination of 'CRLF', 'CR' and 'RemCR'. If 'CR' and
'RemCR' both specified 'RemCR' is ignored. 'CRLF' and
'CR' mean replace them by LF, 'RemCR' means remove
CR's.
-FFIXREVPATH, --fix-rev-path=FIXREVPATH
a colon separated list of fix option, revision number
and path of a file.
-rREGEXP, --regexp=REGEXP
regexp for matching text file names
-tTMPDIR, --temp-dir=TMPDIR
directory for temporary files (default: './').
-wWARNFILE, --warn-file=WARNFILE
file for storing the warnings.
--dry-run just show what would be done but don't do it
Known bugs:
* EOL's aren't fixed in a file which was copied and the old file was not a
text file.
* Diff shows a few Text changes after eolfix !?!
Eolfix-revprop
-----------------
Fixes EOL of revision property.
svndumptool.py eolfix-revprop propname source destination
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
Known bugs:
* None

--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
Known bugs:
* None
Export
------

svndumptool.py export [options] dumpfile
options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-e REV REPOSPATH FILENAME, --export= REV REPOSPATH FILENAME
adds a file to export.
-dDIR, --directory=DIR

options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-r REVNR, --revision=REVNR
revision number
Known bugs:

Merge
-----
Merges multiple dump files into one. It does this by reading all dump files
at the same time and always adding the revision with the oldest revision
date to the output dump file.
Use 'svndumptool.py check -a -d dumpfile' to check that actions and dates
in the merged file make sense.
svndumptool.py merge [options]
Options:
--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-i INFILE, --input-file=INFILE
adds an input dump filename.
-r FROM TO, --rename= FROM TO
adds a rename to the previously added file.
-s SEARCH REPLACE, --regex-substitute= SEARCH REPLACE
performs regular expression search and replace
-x DIR, --mkdir-exclude=DIR
exclude mkdir from the previously added file.
-o OUTFILE, --output-file=OUTFILE
sets the output filename.
-d DIR, --mkdir=DIR create an additional directory.
-m MSG, --message=MSG
logmessage for the directory creating revision.
--example show a little usage example.
Known bugs:
* There's no warning when a dump file does not have monotonic increasing
revision dates. Use 'svndumptool.py check -d dumpfile' to check the
revision dates of a dump file.
* mkdir-exclude may fail in some cases in cvs2svn created dumps.
* using -r and -s options on the same path will have unknown results

Some tips
=========
Moving things around
--------------------
The merge command has a rename option so merge can be 'abused' to just
rename parts of a repository.
The following example shows how to add trunk, tags and branches directories
and move everything from the repository root into trunk:
svndumptool.py merge -i source.svndmp -r "" trunk \
-d trunk -d tags -d branches -m "Create trunk, tags and branches." \
-o destination.svndmp
Fixing end-of-line
------------------
While testing with real data I found some weird stuff in these files.
The safest way to convert EOL's is:
1. Do a test conversion (without --dry-run) converting CRLF only and
generate a warnings file.
svndumptool.py eolfix -Enative -fCRLF -wwarnings.log \
-r '\.txt$' input.svndmp output.svndmp
2. Check all files mentioned in warnings.log and decide how to convert
each of them. Also choose a set of default fix options to minimize the
list of special fix options.
Maybe it's possible to choose a better set of regular expressions.
2.1 Binary files: set empty fix option for that rev/file pair.
svndumptool.py ... -F :12:binary_file.txt ...
2.2 Textfiles containing CR EOL's: convert these
svndumptool.py ... -F CRLF,CR:12:cr_file.txt ...
2.3 Textfiles containing CR which aren't EOL's: remove these
svndumptool.py ... -F CRLF,RemCR:12:weird_file.txt ...
3. Do the real conversion.
4. Use 'svndumptool.py diff [options] input.svndmp output.svndmp' to
compare the dump files. svnadmin load will do another check.
Python classes
==============
The Python classes are documented using epydoc
(http://epydoc.sourceforge.net/).
To generate the HTML docs just enter the following commands:
mkdir doc
epydoc --html -o doc -n "SvnDump 0.5.0" svndump
Packaging
=========
Updating the version number
---------------------------
Check the following files:
- svndump/__init__.py
- svndumptool.spec
Creating a source tar.gz
------------------------
./setup.py sdist --formats gztar
This will create:
./dist/svndumptool-0.5.0.tar.gz
Creating an rpm
---------------
mkdir workarea
cd workarea
mkdir SPECS RPMS SRPMS BUILD SOURCES buildroot
cp ../svndumptool.spec SPECS/
cp ../dist/svndumptool-0.5.0.tar.gz SOURCES/
rpmbuild --define="_topdir `pwd`" \
--define="buildroot `pwd`/buildroot" \
-ba SPECS/svndumptool.spec
This will generate 2 files, a binary rpm and a source rpm:
$ find -name \*.rpm
./SRPMS/svndumptool-0.5.0-1.src.rpm
./RPMS/noarch/svndumptool-0.5.0-1.noarch.rpm
Creating a .exe
---------------
Needs py2exe from http://www.py2exe.org/
.\setup.py py2exe
