#5120 Increase visibility of "HEAD" URLs (and git/hg equivalent) [ss1006]

Chris Tsai


Before the project "upgrades", it was possible to link via URL to the HEAD version of a file in svn. It seems like this is no longer possible, and one can only link to a particular version of a file.

Please can you re-enable this important missing functionality.

As per [#4130], URLs like what he wants (eg. https://sourceforge.net/p/lives/code/HEAD/tree/) already work, but it's really quite hidden and I don't think it's reasonable to expect folks to find it on their own. We should do more to expose these.

    Question: are the branch and tag URLs supposed to work for tarball generation? If so, I can't seem to figure out how. For instance, to generate a tarball from the trunk of my repository, I can go to:


    I would expect that, similarly, I should be able to go to:


    and get a tarball of the stable branch in question, but it doesn't work. When I browse to the branch in question, the "Download snapshot" link creates a tarball of trunk, not of the branch.

    DRC, that ability is being worked on in [#6235]
