Re: svn log get revisions by date

So my understanding is that when you specify a date range it gets the
earliest date and the latest date of the range. Then it finds the revision
numbers corresponding to those two revision times and gives you all
revisions listed between those two revision numbers.

Makes sense in theory but has proven to be a little unreliable.

Cheers
