#895 closed enhancement (fixed)

svn poller should use pass environment to getProcessOutput

Reported by: jonrafkind Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 0.8.2
Version: 0.7.12 Keywords: svn

Description should pass os.environ to utils.getProcessOutput to ensure shell variables are passed along properly. In my setup (gentoo) the $HOME variable is set by the script that starts buildbot, --env HOME=$BASEDIR, and this information is only propagated to the rest of the python system through os.environ.

I do not know if this change has adverse effects on other systems.

  def getProcessOutput(self, args):
        import os
        # this exists so we can override it during the unit tests
        d = utils.getProcessOutput(self.svnbin, args, os.environ)
        return d
