Re: OMG svn info https://?????

I looked. svn info isn't even in a library. All the other operations are.

svn info is hardcore wired into the working copy and I have no clue why.

Isn't the info call the equivalent of the stat call?

I mean, I know svn status isn't the same as unix stat.

Then again, svn status is hardwired into the working copy too. But that one
makes sense. It's supposed to be the status of the working copy.

But what about svn info? There is no library equivalent. :(
