Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Another Reason I Hate Subversion

[ #36953 ]

api_ref_data $ svn status aggtests/test/xml/xpath/

# OK, svn says there's nothing there.  Let's put something there
api_ref_data $ mv pips3.t !$
mv pips3.t aggtests/test/xml/xpath/

# Yup.  svn say's it is not in the repository
api_ref_data $ svn status aggtests/test/xml/xpath/
?      aggtests/test/xml/xpath/pips3.t
api_ref_data $ svn add aggtests/test/xml/xpath/pips3.t
A         aggtests/test/xml/xpath/pips3.t

# OK, added just fine.  Let's commit it.
api_ref_data $ svn commit !$
svn commit aggtests/test/xml/xpath/pips3.t
Adding         aggtests/test/xml/xpath/pips3.t
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File '/svn/pips3/branches/api_ref_data/aggtests/test/xml/xpath/pips3.t' already exists
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn:    '/home/poec01/source/pips3/branches/api_ref_data/aggtests/test/xml/xpath/svn-com mit.tmp'

Yup. Subversion said it wasn't in my repository. I had to do a svn rm directly to the repository. That sucks.

    Your comment doesn't match the code :-)

        "svn status" is telling you that this particular working copy doesn't know about that file. It says nothing about what's in the repository. To actually compare against the repository, you'd use "svn status -u". But if that's your real reason for hating subversion, so be it.
