Doesn’t happen often, but my machine crashed two hours ago. Not a big deal, because I have my important files in SVN. Oh wait, SVN had a commit in progress during the crash. So, svn recover. Mmmm… doesn’t work either. OK, SVN FAQ: try db_recover. That worked. No, it did not: svn commit still not working for the files I was trying to commit. Fortunately, I make regular SVN db backups so I created a brand new SVN repository from scratch and recovered the back up. That worked. Really.
