What about rotates that overlap. Consider a repository:
svnadmin create repo
svn mkdir mm parents file://`pwd`/repo/A/B/C ^/X/Y/Z
Rotate /A and /X/Y/Z and /X and /A/B/C:
svn mv wc/A wc/A2
svn mv wc/X wc/X2
svn mv wc/A2/B/C wc/X
svn mv wc/X2/Y/Z wc/A
svn mv wc/A2/B wc/A/B
svn mv wc/X2/Y wc/X/Y
svn mv wc/A2 wc/X/Y/Z
svn mv wc/X2 wc/A/B/C
This is supported by 1.7 and status shows two pairs swapped (or rotated)
A and X/Y/Z, X and A/B/C. After commit the log looks like:
R /A (from /X/Y/Z:1)
A /A/B (from /A/B:1)
R /A/B/C (from /X:1)
D /A/B/C/Y
R /X (from /A/B/C:1)
A /X/Y (from /X/Y:1)
R /X/Y/Z (from /A:1)
D /X/Y/Z/B
How would Ev2 describe that? Perhaps
rotate(A, X/Y/Z)
rotate(X, A/B/C)
copy(A/B)
copy(X/Y)
delete(A/B/C/Y)
delete(X/Y/Z/B)
The deletes at the end are probably straightforward but will the Ev2
receiver be able to generate a sequence for the rotates and copies?
Where do the alters fit? Your example had an alter(A2) where A2 is the
postmove path, so I can add alters before the deletes:
rotate(A, X/Y/Z)
rotate(X, A/B/C)
copy(A/B)
copy(X/Y)
alter(A/B/C) (the postrotate A/B/C, i.e. prerotate X)
delete(A/B/C/Y)
alter(X/Y/Z) (the postrotate X/Y/Z, i.e. prerotate A)
delete(X/Y/Z/B)
I can do the same for the copies:
rotate(A, X/Y/Z)
rotate(X, A/B/C)
alter(A) (the postrotate A, i.e. the prerotate X/Y/Z)
copy(A/B)
alter(X) (the postrotate X, i.e. the prerotate A/B/C)
copy(X/Y)
alter(A/B/C) (prerotate X)
delete(A/B/C/Y)
alter(X/Y/Z) (prerotate A)
delete(X/Y/Z/B)
Now the rotates. Do I give alters for the prerotate paths or the
postrotate paths? Perhaps this for the first rotate:
alter(.)
alter(X/Y)
rotate(A, X/Y/Z)
rotate(X, A/B/C)
alter(A) (prerotate X/Y/Z)
copy(A/B)
alter(X) (prerotate A/B/X)
copy(X/Y)
alter(A/B/C) (prerotate X)
delete(A/B/C/Y)
alter(X/Y/Z) (prerotate A)
delete(X/Y/Z/B)
What about the second rotate? I don't need another alter(.) but what
about alter(A/B)? The A/B path is affected by the first rotate but I
can't do the first rotate without the second rotate and the copies. So
perhaps I send all the prerotate alters before all the rotates:
alter(.)
alter(A/B)
alter(X/Y)
rotate(A, X/Y/Z)
rotate(X, A/B/C)
alter(A) (prerotate X/Y/Z)
copy(A/B)
alter(X) (prerotate A/B/X)
copy(X/Y)
alter(A/B/C) (prerotate X)
delete(A/B/C/Y)
alter(X/Y/Z) (prerotate A)
delete(X/Y/Z/B)
Is that the way it is supposed to work?
When the receiver processes these operations it cannot complete the
rotates until it has received the copies. At the end of the drive the
rotates have to be possible but at intermediate steps the receiver
doesn't know whether it has enough operations for the rotates to be
possible. Perhaps the receiver postpones rotates that can't be done and
retries every time a new operation is received?
