Is SVN really atomic?

Published on Author Akhil Bansal7 Comments

I am just wondering if svn is really atomic. Actually some days ago I freezed rails and tried to commit but due to some network problem the commit process failed. And then I found some of those files under version control, which should not be there if snv is atomic. I tried many times to commit after svn delete those files, but stuck with the same problem. May be I misunderstood some thing about svn. Did somebody also faced same problem?

  1. Repository commits are atomic. However, it is possible for the working copy to get screwed up (local filesystem operations are not atomic). Run ‘svn cleanup’ in your working copy.
