Re: [ENHANCEMENT/BUG] svn list --verbose should not cut the author in the output

I'm sorry if you get this message twice. I've decided to watch the
subversion dev newsgroup on gmane.org, so I post this message directly
to the newsgroup.

I'd welcome a '--long' option to these commands where none of the output
were cut of, the main reason is to return a parseable (not especially
visually, but by a program) without information loss.

The most elegant solution would be an '--xml' option which would return
an xml format, like the log command, and have the client property
mentioned before.
