Today I came across two interesting things about Subversion. First of all, I think I installed the binary version from the Subversion web site on my Mac, since it is in /usr/local/bin, so I dunno if these are true about the one that comes with Leopard. Anyway, I just typed “svn commit” and emacs opened up. I didn’t even know I had emacs. So, apparently emacs is the default editor on this build of svn. Once I stumbled my way through the editing of the commit message, and remembered the key sequence to quit (CTRL-X, CTRL-C), a dialog popped up on my mac prompting me to allow the command line version of svn access to my keychain. I accepted and didn’t have to type in my password. Pretty fancy.
