Excellent support from Beanstalk

We’ve started evaluating Beanstalk for our subversion repositories, and I had a problem this morning trying to commit to my second repository (the detail is that I was getting the message “Can’t create directory ‘/var/lib/subversion/beanstalk.storage/1911/webistrano/db/transactions/1-1.txn’: Permission denied”). Apparently this is a recurring problem on some accounts – probably a teething problem with the service.

Of course I’d rather not have any problems at all, but when I got this message I logged into the Beanstalk Campfire conversation, and within 10 minutes (9 of which were me getting a drink while Chris worked) Chris Nagele has fixed my problem and I was up and running again. Great stuff!

  1. Does beanstalk give you a “team lead” overview that they talk about? Does it summarize activity in a way that is easily digestable?

  2. Hi Mark – yes, it does have an overview. I included an image in the next post.

  3. One thing I wish it supported was “My Commits”.
