So it's my birthday, and I want to give everyone birthday presents. I've long wanted to do so to urge people give away gifts on their own birtday, so you can receive things all over the year but just have to prepare once.

OK, so the gift for you is the first beta release of svk, which is considered ready for general use. I hope this helps your productivity. Also there's bonus gifts for people developing Linux or FreeBSD

And if you like it, please feel free to send me gifts on your birthday too. :)

automated build testing

So there is whole lot of dependencies that are either static or actively moving along with svk. Mainly Perl 5.8.[0-5], Subversion 1.[01].x branches as well as trunk. I would like to do automated building on the combinations, and see if any of them breaks trunk of SVN::Mirror and svk. testautobuild seems to be the closest, but I am not sure if it could do a chain of build tests after skimming the sample configuration file.

Anyone has experiences with similar test requirement?

svk alpha coming soon

So the most non-trivial features are finished in svk. I'll be releasing 0.08 as alpha, featuring advanced merging facilities for distributed branches. Stay tuned..

subversion perl bindings

looks like i'm getting commit access for the perl bindings of subversion.

the subversion internals are pretty clean, but the api looks even cleaner when using perl:

my $ra = SVN::Ra->new($url);
$ra->get_logs (['/'], $fromrev, $torev, $getpath, $strict, \&receiver);

yes I read sky's journal. I had some very evil plan about subversion few months ago, and it seems getting closer with the perl bindings support now. I'll post some design notes later.

also I don't know if it's just me who noticed that perl folks tend to think subversion people are on various of drug (someone said so on irc), and the subversion people don't really appreicate perl.
