Where to find SVN repository for package opencv_candidate? I did a SVN checkout a couple of weeks ago, but the SVN URL is no longer valid.

I am using package opencv_candidate in SVN revision 50974. It seems that the URL to is no longer valid, and now just returns "HTTP 404 Not Found". It worked for the last months. If you look at, there's not even vision_bleeding to be found.

Now, the following behaviour is puzzling me.

svn co

fails with

svn: URL '' doesn't exist

which might be OK, since this sub-directory in the wg-ros-pkg might have been deleted in a commit after 50974, yet

svn co -r 50974

fails with

svn: '/svn/wg-ros-pkg/!svn/bc/51716/branches/trunk_diamondback/stacks/vision_bleeding/opencv_candidate' path not found

whilst on my SVN working copy (that I've checked out way earlier) the following works

svn info

properly printing

Path: .


Repository Root:

Repository UUID: 7275ad9f-c29b-430a-bdc5-66f4b3af1622

Revision: 50974


and also

svn update -r 51400

actually retrieves files and prints as expected

At revision 51400.

Puzzling though that

svn update

leads to

svn: Target path does not exist

Finally, I just want to retrieve opencv_candidate in revision 50479 (it should not disappear from history, right?), but rosinstall will fail to retrieving opencv_candidate in that revision. What am I doing wrong here? Anybody else using opencv_candidate, and having similar issues?

The directory was renamed, see this answer

If you want to checkout the old version you have to use different syntax. (It's an odd bug in the svn client.)

svn co

Thanks, that solved the issue! Your response made me do further research (this time on SVN). It's not a bug! See . So, I will have to take the blame, and the SVN client actual works correctly here!
