enversion 0.2.17

Enterprise Subversion Framework


### What is Enversion?

Enversion is a server-side tool that sits in front of your Subversion
repositories and validates incoming commits. It can detect a wide variety
of problematic commits ([over 80](/lib/evn/constants.py#L34)) and will block
them at the pre-commit stage.

Enversion was designed specifically for enterprise Subversion deployments,
which have vastly different usage patterns than typical open source Subversion
repositories.

See the [wiki](/../../wiki/) for more information:
- [Tutorial 1 - Creating a new, Enversion-enabled Subversion Repository](/../../wiki/Tutorial-1-New-Repository)
- [Tutorial 2 - Enabling Enversion against an existing Subversion Repository](/../../wiki/Tutorial-2-Existing-Repository)

### Installation & Quick Start: Cheatsheet
Pre-requisites:
```
% wget http://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/Miniconda-3.3.0-Linux-x86_64.sh
% bash Miniconda-3.3.0-Linux-x86_64.sh
% source ~/.bashrc
% conda config --add channels enversion
```

To install:
```
% conda install enversion
```

To update to the latest version:
```
% conda update enversion
```

To create isolated environments with different versions:
```
% conda create -n evn-0.2.5 enversion=0.2.5
% source activate evn-0.2.5
```

```
% conda create -n evn-0.2.6 enversion=0.2.6
% source activate evn-0.2.6
```

To create a new Subversion repository automatically protected by Enversion:
```
% evnadmin create foo
```

To verify Enversion is installed and working:
```
% evnadmin show-repo-hook-status test
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Repository Hook Status for 'test' |
| (/home/evnadm/test) |
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Name | Exists? | Valid? | Exe? | Cnfgrd? | Enbld? | Rdb? |

| start-commit| Y | - | Y | Y | Y | N |

|=====================|=========|========|======|=========|========|======|
| evn.sh| Y | Y | Y | 9/9 | 9/9 | - |
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------+
```

To enable Enversion against an existing repository, first, analyze it:
```
% evnadmin analyze myrepo
```

Then enable:
```
% evnadmin enable myrepo
```

### Installation Guide - Detailed

The easiest (and recommended) way to install Enversion is via ``conda``, the
cross-platform (Windows, Linux and OS X) binary package manager from [Continuum
Analytics](http://continuum.io).

> Already have ``conda`` installed? Enversion installation is simple:
> ```
> % conda config --add channels enversion
> % conda install enversion
> ```

You can get ``conda`` in one of two ways:

- Install [Anaconda](https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/) (245MB
to 483MB depending on platform).

- Install [Miniconda](http://conda.pydata.org/miniconda.html#miniconda)
(18MB to 30MB depending on platform).

[Anaconda](https://store.continuum.io/cshop/anaconda/) is a fully-fledged,
completely free, enterprise-ready Python distribution for large-scale data
processing, predictive analytics, and scientific computing. [It ships with
over 125 of the most popular Python packages for science, math, engineering and
data analysis](http://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/pkgs.html)

[Miniconda](http://conda.pydata.org/miniconda.html#miniconda) is a bare-bones
version of Anaconda that only includes the small subset of Python packages
required by ``conda``.

> Pro-tip: installed Miniconda, but want to try out Anaconda? Simply run:
> ```
> % conda install anaconda
> ```

#### Miniconda Installation (Linux)

Miniconda installation is trivial:

```

access to conda:

```
[evnadm@centos5x64 ~]$ source .bashrc
[evnadm@centos5x64 ~]$ which conda

Then simply run the following to install Enversion:
```

[evnadm@centos5x64 ~]$
```

This will install Enversion, which is administered via the command line program
``evnadmin``, and all required dependencies. Note that the entire installation
is contained within the Miniconda installation, ensuring that there aren't any
conflicts with other versions of Subversion/HTTPD that may be installed on your
system.

Additionally, because the Enversion conda package manages all dependencies, no
root access is required, nor are there any base-system RPM dependencies. This
is one of the reasons conda is the recommended installation technique.

### Quick Start

```
evnadmin create foo
svn mkdir -m "Initializing repository." file://`pwd`/foo/trunk
svn mkdir -m "Initializing repository." file://`pwd`/foo/branches
svn mkdir -m "Initializing repository." file://`pwd`/foo/tags
svn cp -m "Branching trunk to 1.x." file://`pwd`/foo/trunk \
file://`pwd`/foo/branches/1.x
svn cp -m "Branching trunk to 2.x." file://`pwd`/foo/trunk \
file://`pwd`/foo/branches/2.x
svn cp -m "Tagging 1.0." file://`pwd`/foo/trunk \
file://`pwd`/foo/tags/1.0
```

Root tracking:
```
% evnadmin show-roots foo
Showing roots for repository 'foo' at r6:
{'/branches/1.x/': {'created': 4},
'/branches/2.x/': {'created': 5},
'/tags/1.0/': {'copied_from': ('/trunk/', 5),
'copies': {},
'created': 6,
'creation_method': 'copied',
'errors': []},
'/trunk/': {'created': 1}}
%
```

Individual root information:
```
% evnadmin root-info /branches/1.x/ foo
'/branches/1.x/': {
'copies': { },
'copied_from': ('/trunk/', 3),
'creation_method': 'copied',
'errors': [],
'created': 4,
}
%
```

Forward-copy information:
```
% evnadmin root-info /trunk/ foo
'/trunk/': {
'copies': {
3: [('/branches/1.x/', 4)],
4: [('/branches/2.x/', 5)],
5: [('/tags/1.0/', 6)]
},
'creation_method': 'created',
'created': 1,
}
```

Extensive protection [against over 80+ types of undesirable commits](/lib/evn/constants.py#L34):

```
% svn co file://`pwd`/foo foo.wc
% cd foo.wc
% svn mkdir branches/3.x
% svn ci -m "Manual directory creation."
Adding branches/3.x
svn: E165001: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E165001: Commit blocked by pre-commit hook (exit code 1) with output:
error: errors:
{'/branches/3.x/': ['branch directory created manually']}

Commits with errors or warnings can be forced through by the following repository admins: <none>, or support staff:

% svn ci -m "Removing tag." tags/1.0
Deleting tags/1.0
svn: E165001: Commit failed (details follow):
