$ svk mirror http://svn.somewhere.org/project //mirror/project
Committed revision 1.
$ svk sync //mirror/project
I’m not sure what the reason but in general the problem seems
to be isolated to the SVN::Mirror perl module. Perhaps if you upgrade
SVK and all its dependencies via your package manager of choice and SVN::Mirror
is updated to the right version I think you can get away from the problem.
Upgrade SVN::Mirror (somehow). Since I installed SVK by hand it was possible
to upgrade using cpan. Here’s what I did:
cpan> install SVN::Mirror
Running install for module SVN::Mirror
Running make for C/CL/CLKAO/SVN-Mirror-0.71.tar.gz
After that, I was able to use svk sync as expected.
