I think that it would be better to simply have the following:

   svn, version 0.34.0 (release)

There really is no sensible repository revision number to put in there.
  At least no useful repository number... :-)

My personal opinion is that this revision number is pretty useless to
have in the CHANGES file, but other people seem to like it, at least as
long as it specifies the trunk revision number from which the release
was branched. To make it clear what the revision number means it would
be nice to change the line into one of the following variants:

1. Version 0.34.0 (released 3 December 2003, from trunk revision 7859)
2. Version 0.34.0 (released 3 December 2003, branched from trunk r7859)
3. Version 0.34.0 (released 3 December 2003, based on trunk r7859)

Number 2 is my personal favourite.
