#5 svn:author not the same as svn:log

Erik H

So I'm confused as to why the svn:author in the revision properties is not always the same as the PeopleSoft user you are adding in the message of the svn:log. I have added all the svnusers in the DecodePC.properties file and also modified the passwd file in the repository. Any suggestions?

    Known problem - the mapping from PS to SVN users does not work well.

    The PS user that is listed in the log message is correct.

    I suspect there is some caching going on in the SVNKit library, the code that does the actual mapping seems to work.

    On my to-do list but with a low priority (perhaps I'll give up and get rid of the mapping).

    I haven't worked with this enough to really tell you if there is a huge benefit to having the svn author = PS OPRID. Only thing I could think of is if you wanted a list of customized/delivered customized objects, but you can get that directly from the database. It may suffice just to have a default svn author for every commit. Not sure if there is a way to add a property to a commit where you could separate out the LASTUPDOPRID and LASTUPDDTTM fields.
