Unable to update svn

I'm not able to update, I get the following. I've tried several
likely passwords, no success. This is coincident with losing the
capability to sync, "Invalid output from server"

ktenney@nalbert:~/src/zotero$ svn up
Authentication realm: <https://www.zotero.org:443>; Zotero Dev
Password for 'ktenney':

  • SVN problem should be fixed.

    Working on the "Invalid output" problem.
  • This "Invalid output" error should be fixed in the latest trunk build.
  • Both the svn Auth request and the "invalid output" issues went away
    for a day, are now back.

    svn does get the updates before prompting for auth, I seem to recall it previously
    would not fetch the updates.
  • SVN should be fixed. (It's a problem with the way SVN appears to be handling file copies. Erasing and recreating your working copy would also fix it.)

    "Invalid output" messages are unrelated. Start a new thread and include the Report ID from the error message.
  • After recreating my working copy, svn up is fine and Z synced fine.

  • Hi guys
    it looks like im getting that error to , i get

    Authentication realm: <https://www.zotero.org:443>; Zotero Dev

    then i get asked a password which i obviously don't know

    the odd thing is i can check out the same folder in some place else
    and i get result listing the folder inner files when i use "svn ls"
    and then i could update the same folders files by calling "svn update <filename>"
    so far i have moved on and im using " svn ls | xargs svn update" to update files one by one but i think this could be a misconfiguration problem on server side .

    For now, delete your working copy and do another checkout (or use your xargs workaround). It happens when someone renames or moves a file in SVN—at least the version we're using—with a non-public root directory.
  • I am getting this error when trying to commit (I didn't have this problem yesterday). I double-checked my password, deleted my working copy, and checked out a fresh copy from https://www.zotero.org/svn/csl/, and it still didn't work. I thought perhaps my username was wrong, but when I changed it to what I thought it could be my KDE SVN client asked again for login details instead of giving error 443.

    CSLs can no longer be committed to Zotero SVN.


    Documentation and processes for committing styles to the GitHub repo are still under development, but see https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles#readme for the basics.
  • until then just post the style somewhere on github and Rintze or I will put it up.
  • Thanks—I was wondering when the old styles would be deprecated, and so far I like how Github works.
