#2110 closed defect (fixed)

New SVN checkout step does not respect workdir when using full mode and copy method

Reported by: garmstrong Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 0.8.6
Version: 0.8.5 Keywords: svn


I aligned one of our simpler projects with BuildBot 0.8.5 and aligned on the new master side source step for SVN for source checkout. Code is checked to the source directory as advertised in the Buildbot 0.8.5 documentation and then copied to the build/source as advertised.

However, I was expecting that the workdir parameter be respected as in the case with the incremental mode. The contents of the source should be copied to workdir (as with the old buildslave SVN command copy mode).
