[PATCH] : update svn.1

From: David Kimdon <dwhedon_at_debian.org>
Date: 2002-09-11 06:26:39 CEST


Here is an update to svn.1 that syncs the manpage to the current command line


* subversion/clients/cmdline/man/svn.1 :
  - Remove note saying the manpage is in bad shape, add pointer to Subversion
  - Remove old common options that are no longer available. (--,-p|--stdout,
    -n|--dry-run, --no-rc, -T|--text-defaults, --writable, --read-only,
    -I|--ignore, -e|--editor, -K|--keywords, -L|--line-conversions)
  - Change name for some common options. (--local-dir -> --nonrecursive,
    --verbose=blah -> --verbose or --quiet, -F|--msg-file -> -F|--file)
  - Document new common options. (--message-encoding, --show-updates,
    --username, --password, -x|--extensions, --strict, --no-ignore,
  - For each command show which common options are valid.
  - Try to trim down everything to make the manpage smaller where possible, add
    more to descriptions some places as well.
  - Document new commands (merge, resolve, switch)
