Sounds Like Weird

Fun with Subversion

05 December 2005

So, this morning I did an ‘svn up’ on a project before I went to breakfast, then went off onto the other side of the hotel property to do some work and schmooze.

Later, I got this error:

$ svn up<br></br>svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/reposname/!svn/vcc/default'<br></br>svn: REPORT of '/svn/reposname/!svn/vcc/default': 400 Bad Request (<br></br>

See, I hadn’t changed anything, and svn up on some other domains worked — which made the problem significantly harder to debug, actually.

Ultimately, the problem was simply a blocked port. Thanks to Daniel for figuring it out while I still had some hair remaining.
