Actually I must disagree a bit on the way this is done.

The thing that is the important distinction, in my opinion, is that
did the revision number change or not. It's confusing to see "Updated
to revision N" when the revision was the same as before - but it's not
as confusing to see that when the revision _was_ changed, just that
there were no changes.

So I vote for either three messages - update with changes, update
without changes and update but no new revision - or that the different
messages comes only in the case where there is no new revision.
