Loading certain SVN commits cause Unhandled Exception

After upgrading phabricator, we have noticed that certain commits in an SVN repository are not displaying in Diffusion. We get:

Unhandled Exception ("RuntimeException")
Undefined variable: changesets

Looking in /var/logs/apache2/error.log we have:

As far as I can tell, it is only affecting commits of new branches or tags. Any ideas on what is causing this?

Library Version Date Branchpoint

Reproduction Instructions

  • Load certain commits from a particular SVN repository
  • Doesn’t affect all commits in this repo, it’s about 50%
  • It’s not just commits since the upgrade, old commits are affected too
  • Only seems to affect commits of new tags or branches

Thanks in advance!


This should be fixed by https://secure.phabricator.com/D21175, which is now in master and stable.

(I believe the affected commits are commits that don’t show changesets normally. There are several conditions which lead to this: deleted commits, a very large number of changes, commits that have not imported yet, etc.)

Thanks, that has fixed it!

Great! Thanks for the report, and let me know if you run into anything else.
