With PHP 8.1+ it was not possible to view a commit from subversion repositories.
Indeed, if the commit user and/or email is not properly defined, strlen(null) is called, causing a deprecation warning, elevated to exception.
Using strlen() to check string validity is deprecated since PHP 8.1. Phorge adopts phutil_nonempty_string() as a replacement.
Note: this may highlight other absurd input values that might be worth correcting
instead of just ignoring. If phutil_nonempty_string() throws an exception in your
instance, report it to Phorge to evaluate and fix that specific corner case.
