Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Retrieving the SVN repository version

Moin List,

I just wanted to fix
http://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=429
Instead of reverse engineering the .svn/entries format for svn 1.4 I
decided to ask the developers of svn about it, and they strongly
discouraged such a practice. They asked whether it was unacceptable to
require developers working with svn anyway to install svnversion (which
has some nice side effects, just run with --help). Considering the
amount of work that has to go into this (and it may happen again and
again) I'd like to think that it is indeed ok to require svnversion in
$PATH, but then, I'm on a platform where svnversion is installed anyway.
Btw, svnversion doesn't change its output depending on language
settings.

 Ciao
      Joerg

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
