Working around –non-interactive problems in Leopard’s Subversion

Apparently, the –non-interactive flag is broken in Subversion as distributed with Leopard and a fix is not yet available. Bad news for Maven users wanting to use any of the SCM tools.

Hopefully a fix will be available either through an update or a version of Subversion that can be compiled from source, but in the mean time I put this shell script ahead of svn in my PATH:

Updated 15 Mar 08: Wendy pointed out you need to chop the username too. Now it’s even more hacky.

#!/bin/sh

if [ "$1" = "--non-interactive" -o "$1" = "--username" ]; then
  shift
fi

if [ "$1" = "--non-interactive" -o "$1" = "--username" ]; then
  shift
fi

/usr/bin/svn "$@"

Mmm, hacky.
