Due to a persisting bug between the interaction of Subversion and DB4, periodically, operations on a repository may result in a failure with a message indicating that the recovery process should be run. This is a trivial process that can be run by any project committer. The following example demonstrates how to run the recovery process on the FOO repository:

  1. Log into and execute the following commands:
    /usr/local/despots/bin/fixsvn --project=FOO

If your repository is using the fsfs backend instead of the bdb backend, it will be much less likely that it will need to be recovered. It is for this reason that all repositories are being migrated to the fsfs backend at Codehaus.
