Spaces in User Names and psvn.el¶
Handling SVN user names with spaces in emacs’ svn-status.
I recently started on a project using svnserve's --tunnel-user option where many of the committers have user names with spaces. Much to my chagrin, my beloved svn-status in emacs choked on those user names un able to tell where the user name ended and the filename began.
Then I found a comment in the current version of psvn.el detailing how to work around this. Just be sure you have the current version on your load-path and add something like the following to your ~/.emacs:
(setq svn-user-names-including-blanks '(\"feng shui\" \"mister blank\")) (add-hook 'svn-pre-parse-status-hook 'svn-status-parse-fixup-user-names-including-blanks)
