Assume the following scenario:

  • Project A with SVN at $URL$/projectA
    • Project AA as sub project of Project A with SVN at $URL$/projectA/projectAA
  • ticket 123 in Project AA
  • commit a revision 456 linked to ticked 123

Result: in ticket 123 revision 456 will be mentioned twice

It's clear, why this is happening. Redmine doesn't understand, that those subversion repositories are basically the same one in an hierarchy.

#1 Updated by Felix Schäfer almost 13 years ago

Redmine expects all repositories to be unique, i.e. not to have some bits of a single repository "seen" by many projects. You may be able to correct this behavior for you by unchecking the setting that allows cross-project linking (can't rename the exact name, sorry).

#2 Updated by Jan Stoetzer almost 10 years ago

The same thing happens with redmine 2+ where you can associate multiple repositories with a project.
Scenario is similar:

  • Project A
    • Repository1 URL/ProjectA
    • Repository2 URL/ProjectB
  • Project B is subproject of ProjectA
    • Repostitory URL/ProjectB, completely independent from ProjectA Repo, not in same hierarchy etc.
  • Ticket 123 in Project A
  • Ticket 124 in Project B
  • Both Tickets have relation
  • Revision X in Repo URL/ProjectB is related to ticket A-123
  • Revision Y in Repo URL/ProjectB solves ticket B-124


  • Revision X is listed three times in ticket A-123
  • Revision Y is listed two times in Ticket B-124, together with two comments "Status changed by changeset ProjectA:RepoB|RevisionY" and "Status changed by changeset RepoB|RevisionY"

I think there should be a check in the fetch_changesets that avoid these multiple listings. They are really nasty.
