I'm one of the team members for the Open Object Rexx project. We have the code SVN reposiory tool activated. When I browse through our repository, I see a "Snapshot" link at the top of each page, which I had assumed would generate a snapshot of the current subdirectory of the repository.
This does not work.
Using this URL as an example:
There are 4 files in that subdirectory. I've attached a .png showing the page. I expect the snapshot function to generate a .tar or .zip file containing the content of the subdirectory for easy downloading.
When I click the Snapshot link I get a page saying:
Generating snapshot ...
With the URL being:
Which lead me to believe things were working. ;-)
However, it takes an extremely long time for the file to be generated and when it is downloaded it is over 270 MB in size:
01/19/2014 11:36 PM 270,223,208 oorexx-code-0-9860.zip
The file listed above appears to contain a large portion of the entire repository.
I can't believe that the Snapshot feature is intended to work that way. It must be a bug.
I've tried several times and the results are the same.
Confirmed, behavior is exactly as described in my testing.
