By the way, didn't mean that to sound as harsh as it came out, Mark.
I just wasn't sure if you were misunderstanding "svn st -v", or if I
was misunderstanding your mail.

Anyway, in "svn st -v", the numbers on the individual file lines
always refer to something about that file, not something about the
repository. But if you add the "-u" flag, then (among other things)
at the end the status output it shows you the repository head
revision. Here's a real life example, somewhat abbreviated:

   floss$ svn st -nvu
   __ 1789 1789 kfogel .
   _ 1789 1259 jerenkra ./BUGS
   _ 1789 1784 sussman ./CHANGES
   _ 1789 1600 kfogel ./COMMITTERS
   _ 1789 1219 kfogel ./COPYING
   __ 1789 1753 kfogel ./HACKING
   _ 1789 1 svn ./IDEAS
   __ 1789 1780 striker ./INSTALL
   _ 1789 1738 jerenkra ./Makefile.in
   _ 1789 1319 kfogel ./PORTING
   __ 1789 1363 sussman ./README
   _ 1789 1669 kfogel ./autogen.sh
   _ 1789 1777 cmpilato ./build.conf
   _ 1789 1738 jerenkra ./configure.in
   Head revision: 1798

Head is 1798, but (as you can see) it looks like I haven't done an
update since 1789. I might run an update and none of these files
would change, but all the 1798's would change to 1798's.

Hope that helps,
-Karl
