Comment #2 on issue 1792 by post-review fails to upload diff with only binary files modified

It appears as though the problem is caused by svn. From what I've read, svn does not support binary diffs (they only support text). There is a way to get around this though:

If you try to do an > svn diff binary.bin you will probably get a Cannot display error.

First set an editor so you can edit the file's svn properties.

export EDITOR=yourPreferredEditor

You can take a look at the properties file with:

svn propedit svn:mime-type binary.bin

And delete the svn:mime-type property with:

svn propdel svn:mime-type binary.bin

Then you should be able to get a diff using svn diff binary.bin (svn now thinks it is a text file).
