After over a year, Subversion has finally started with 1.8.0 release
candidates. I've rebased this patch and succesfully tested it against

I'll send the updated patch over as a reply to this mail.

As for testing, it took a bit of messing to get all the paths correct,
so I'll document what I did here.

I used a the 1.8.0-rc3 tarball and ran:

        subversion-1.8.0-rc3$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/svn
        subversion-1.8.0-rc3$ make all install
        subversion-1.8.0-rc3$ make swig-pl install-swig-pl PREFIX=/usr/local/svn

I took a git master checkout with the patch applied and ran:

        git$ make prefix=/usr/local/git all install

Then, inside some git-svn clone, I ran:

        $ PERL5LIB=/usr/local/svn/local/lib/perl/5.14.2/ 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/svn/lib/  /usr/local/git/bin/git svn rebase
        Password for 'default' GNOME keyring:
        Current branch master is up to date.

When removing the PERL5LIB and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables to run against
the system version of subversion (1.6.17 here), I get an authorization
failure as before:

        $ /usr/local/git/bin/git svn rebase
        Authorization failed: OPTIONS of 'http://svn.example.org': 
authorization failed: Could not authenticate to server: rejected Basic 
challenge (http://example.org) at /usr/local/git/share/perl/5.14.2/Git/SVN.pm 
line 717
