Bug#489235: ITP: libsvn-dump-perl -- A Perl interface to Subversion dumps

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Edi Stojicevic <estojicevic@debianworld.org>

* Package name    : libsvn-dump-perl
  Version         : 0.04
  Upstream Author : Philippe Bruhat (BooK)

  Description     : A Perl interface to Subversion dumps

An SVN::Dump object represents a Subversion dump.

This module follow the semantics used in the reference document (the file notes/fs_dumprestore.txt in the Subversion source tree):

    * A dump is a collection of records (SVN::Dump::Record objects).
    * A record is composed of a set of headers (a SVN::Dump::Headers object), a set of properties (a SVN::Dump::Property object) and an optional bloc of text (a SVN::Dump::Text object).
    * Some special records (delete records with a Node-kind header) recursively contain included records.

Each class has a as_string() method that prints its content in the dump format.

The most basic thing you can do with SVN::Dump is simply copy a dump:

    use SVN::Dump;

    my $dump = SVN::Dump->new( 'mydump.svn' );
    print $dump->as_string(); # only print the dump header

    while( $rec = $dump->next_record() ) {
        print $rec->as_string();

After the operation, the resulting dump should be identical to the original dump.
