Capistrano/Rake integration is deprecated

Hello everybody,
I’m trying to include capistrano support into RoR application, as
descripbed in the 2nd version of the Agile Rails book. But after
invoking the command :

rake remote:cold_deploy

I’ve received the message “Capistrano/Rake integration is
deprecated”: ##################################
rake remote:cold_deploy (in /var/www/ruby/demo) Capistrano/Rake
integration is deprecated. Please invoke the ‘cap’ command directly:
`cap cold_deploy’ * executing task cold_deploy * executing task update

revision… svn: REPORT request failed on ‘/svn/demo/!svn/bc/0/trunk’

Why capistrano is deprecated? What does it mean? How to fix?
Thanks in advance.

It just means that the rake tasks for calling capistrano recipes is
going away. You can run the same thing directly with capistrano (as
the error message says).

rake remote:cold_deploy

is just one step removed from:

cap cold_deploy

Less typing, too!

Are you sure you have the subversion repository path correct? Can
you run the svn commands manually on your application server? It
seems like the svn command is found, but it’s looking for /svn/demo/!
svn/bc/0/trunk
