Hi Selmah

No, this is svn database corruption, unrelated to ezp. It happens from time to time ... the svn software is still alpha and rsynced from the master at to a local machine here for public access. You may also experience such problems while updates are in progress. More or less safe windows are from 35 min past each hour until 15 minutes past the next hour, worst case.

The updates are done automatically hourly during normal working hours and a few more times during the evening/morning.

The update scripts will detect corruption and try to cope with it automatically ... but sometimes this fails and a manual intervention is necessary. Check the main page on, it may have some clues.

So the message is to come back after a few hours (in the worst case, the next day) and try again.


PS: The update scripts are rather complicated now to cope with a basic set of known svn problems, and will be refined more in the future. Some monitoring scripts will be added to minimise down-times too.
