change post-review to use correct diff tool in svn diff
Review Request #299 — Created March 18, 2008 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
I notice that in contrib/tools/post-review:SVNClient.diff it calls "svn diff %s". This means that it invokes svn in a way that loads ~/.subversion/config. This means that the diff-cmd I have set in my ~/.subversion/config gets invoked. I use tkdiff, and so instead of finding the patch file on stdout, there is nothing. It seems like there are a few possible solutions: 1. set --diff-cmd to something reasonable. This is probably hard across OS'es (I'm guessing that diff(1) isn't on most people's path on windows). 2. I'd love to run svn --diff-cmd=built-in, but it seems like svn doesn't have that. Perhaps there's a way to set an environment variable to point the subversion from config to ~/.subversion/config to /this/is/not/a/file? 3. Some other way?
