SVN Diff Problems

    I'm having some problems getting codestriker to parse svn diff files correctly and can't seem to figure out what the problem is. Some of my diffs are displayed side-by-side with the repo versions and others just show up as a plain text diff file.

    I can't seem to find a pattern in what works and what does not work. I've tried changing the path that I'm running 'svn diff' from but can't seem do anything. I've also tried changing platforms (linux/Windows) and diff sources (Eclipse/svn/tortoiseSVN) with no pattern emerging as far as what works and what doesn't.

    Are there any common issues with creating diffs in svn? Is there any logging functionality in codestriker that I could turn on so I can figure out if there are any errors?



    Server info:
    perl 5.85
    running codestriker as a cgi (not mod-perl)
    apache 2.0.52
    svn 1.1.4 (repo is 1.5.x)

      Some fixes have been made for the upcoming 1.9.7 release which mainly related to Subversion diffs which contain property set changes.

      You could try the current release from Codestriker's CVS to see if it fixes your issue, or remove the property set changes from your diff text.
