SVN RELOCATE: SourceForge moves Subversion URLS - Will the fun ever start?
I really don't like to "blog bile" but seriously, SourceForge may have jumped the shark for me. The website does have a certain Vegas billboard charm, circa 1997, but what is going on over there? The Site News is updated (barely) every few months, while important news is hidden on the Site Status Page.
UPDATED: Apparently I'm the only guy who didn't get the message on this.
Basically, a few days ago they upped and change the URLs for Subversion. Suddenly I started getting this uninformative error (Subversion's fault really, more than SF.NET):
Error: PROPFIND of '/svnroot/dasblogce/trunk': Could not resolve hostname `svn.sourceforge.net': The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. (https://svn.sourceforge.net)
John Forsythe figured out that they'd moved the URLs, adding the project name as a sub-sub-domain, providing what value I do not know.
The announcement of this change was buried here. Of course, why didn't I see that? Seems like it would have been better to email all the project owners, or put an announcement on each project page with the new URL.
Either way, you can fix it WITHOUT re-checking out your code by using the rarely used SVN Relocate command, as seen in the screenshot above. You'll get a very frightening warning from Subversion indicating that this is ever so rarely used and you may ruin everything. Say Yes. Crisis averted.
