Description Brion Vibber 2006-09-15 08:10:56 UTC
The .svn/entries file format has changed from clean XML to some weird line-based 
fixed-size format, and the revision number can't be extracted.

Could switch to using the 'svnversion' helper program if present, but may not be 
reliable (chroot, non-standard directory, different versions present, or just missing 
because the checkout was made on another machine).

Good to figure out the new format, if it's consistent or documented. Sigh.

The new format is consistent. I have patched SpecialVersion.php so that it could
handle SVN 1.3 and SVN 1.4 in
