Than you for the information,
and that's the plan I'm doing right now.
I created a BASH script wrapper on top of rbt command line tool
to handle "rbt post" that contains binary changes,
and tar all the changed binaries into a single tarball to attach to a
While developing the wrapper script,
I found out there's no "rbt attach" update commands to update specific
I see "Update" feature is available on Web UI.
Another thing is SVN property changes handling (svn propset, proplist).
"rbt diff / rbt patch" is able to correctly handling the changes in "SVN
eg. (rbt diff)
--- x86_64/dd (revision 7144)
+++ x86_64/dd (working copy)
Property changes on: x86_64/dd
## -0,0 +1 ##
\ No newline at end of property
And when I do "rbt patch",
the corresponding SVN property changes applied correctly.
But from the WebUI,
I can't find any trace to the changed file "dd".
Unlike binary file change,
the webUI diff would still show:
This is a binary file. The content cannot be displayed.
I'd suggest it should display the same as "rbt diff".
