[Buildbot-devel] Problem with SVNPoller on Windows

Just joined the list and was perusing the Archives; thought I'd help with
the below:
Try instead svnbin = *r*'C:\Program Files (x86)\Subversion\bin\svn.exe'
(or wherever yours is).

Works for me. Key is to make the string "raw".

Hi Tomaz,

Thank you for the suggestion. It is still a work-around (because there can
no space in the path), but it is not as bad as my hack in twisted.

I've tried it, it works, and I can use SVNPoller with an unmodified version
of buildbot and twisted, so I'm quite happy.

It would obviously be better if the default value of svnbin actually had a
chance to work on windows, but I do not know how to fix this in the
twisted/buildbot source code. If anyone has a suggestion that does not mean
to much work, I will give it a try.
