Description

When files are commited to svn repository with binary mime type (generally anything with application/* mime), Redmine still shows the "Annotate" button for them, but pressing it shows an empty change list. It would be more user-friendly to show some kind of message indicating why no diff is available (e.g. "This file has a binary mime type of application/xml").

What SCM are you using ? With Subversion, you should get a message.
Example here on redmine.org: http://www.redmine.org/repositories/annotate/redmine/trunk/public/images/1downarrow.png

Sorry, I didn't see that you said "svn repository".
Don't you get the same error message on your install ?

#3 Updated by Leszek Ciesielski over 13 years ago

My mistake. The 'Annotate' behaves as expected, it's the 'Compare Differences' that shows no error message.

OK, I'll check it.

Hi there,

I just tested this on redmine.org, this seems to be still reproduceable.

Best regards,
