      we are using version 1.327

      Hi, we've been trying to setup SCM polling to alert hudson to changes in our
      subversion repos as documented in:

      It seems there's a bug in that the mechanism only reads the first line of the
      POST http body, thus only the first SVN url in the changeset will be compared
      against to determine what jobs are polled.

      We've setup some debug scripts to manually send notifies in the same way we'd
      trigger via a subversion post-commit hook, and are able to examine the data
      we're sending and verify that all the lines from our "svnlook changed" are being
      sent correctly in the request.

      Cranking up the debug output in hudson shows that the class handling the
      response is only reading in the first line. The file is
      SubversionRepositoryStatus.java found here:


      The relevant code:

      while((line=new BufferedReader(req.getReader()).readLine())!=null) {
      LOGGER.finer("Reading line: "+line);

      It seems the problem is the while loop, you can typically only invoke
      getReader() once per HTTPServletRequest, so moving it out of the loop should
      resolve the issue.
