Re: Neon upgrade breaks backwards compatibility of Subversion

I haven't seen any problems, but none of my servers are running anything
as ancient as 1.4.2.

I've upgraded the version of Subversion on the CentOS box to 1.5.6, but
the problem persists. Again, rolling back www/neon to 0.26.3nb2 on my
NetBSD box solves the problem.

Perhaps you can post the precise error messages, with as much debugging
as you can turn on, including what system you are running on, what
authentication method you are trying, and whether all certificates are
really valid.

The client trying to perform the commit is a NetBSD 5.0_RC4 machine with
Subversion 1.5.6 (1.5.6nb2 from pkgsrc) and neon 0.28.3. The server
hosting the repository is a CentOS 5.2 machine now running subversion
1.5.6. The connection is via HTTP, so no certificates are involved.

You could also report this upstream, as it seems
fairly likely to be an upstream bug rather than a pkgsrc bug.

I've had a poke around the Subversion mailing lists, but not come up
with anything. A client on a Mac OS X machine with Subversion 1.6.1
has the same problem, which I suspect is down to an incompatibility
between neon 0.28 and the 0.25 version that comes with CentOS. I'll take
this issue up on the neon mailing list if there is one.
