I still think breakage is better. If they're using trunk, without
pinning a revision, it must be because they want the latest code.
They won't get that from svn. This is a case where I think it's
better to fail in an obvious way.
Yeah, +1 from me here. If people think they're using trunk, and they're
not 'cos its moved to GitHub, that's bad.
FWIW, you may not know that GitHub really does have an svn interface to
git repositories on GitHub. They unfortunately announced this on April 1
one year, so I think most people (myself included, until I actually
started using it) assume it's a joke.
So, it really is a case of CI tools changing their subversion url, and
others doing a svn switch --relocate.
