When indexing a repository, the following error can be seen in the logs:

2012-12-07 16:09:09,646 ERROR [InitialPinger1 repository] fisheye DiffChangeSetProcessor-insertNewRevision - Attempting to insert a revison which already exists for acme/


There are two possible causes:

  1. An incorrect SVN tag and branch structure has been applied to the repository.
  2. Fisheye is indexing paths that are not part of the repository.


  1. Change the SVN tag and branch settings in order to match the repository structure. Use the instructions on the following page to verify SVN symbolic rules.
  2. Exclude the paths that are not part of the repository from being indexed.
