[PATCH] cmdline output changes to release notes

From: Peter N. Lundblad <peter_at_famlundblad.se>
Date: 2005-05-05 21:48:12 CEST

Could someone just take a look at the following patch that adds
information about cmdline output changes that possibly break scripts and
such to the 1.2 release notes, please? I'd like some review before
committing since it goes to the live site after commit.

TIA,
//Peter

* www/svn_1.2_releasenotes.html (Compatibility): Add info about cmdline
  output changes.

+<p>Although the Subversion developers try hard to keep parsable output
+from the command line programs compatible between releases, new
+information sometimes has to be added. This might break scripts
+relying on the exact formatting of the output. In 1.2, the following
+changes have been made to the client output:</p>

+<ul>
+
+<li><p>For <tt>svn update</tt>, the paths have been shifted two
+ columns to the right, thus they start in column five. Column
+ three contains a <tt>B</tt> when a lock was broken or
+ stolen.</p></li>
+
+<li><p><tt>svn status</tt> adds information about locks in the sixth
+ column. Note that this column was previously unused, so the
+ old information is still in the same positions as
+ before.</p></li>
+
+<li><p>Several lines were added to the <tt>svn info</tt> output,
+ containing lock information.</p></li>
+
+</ul>
+
 <h3>New Features</h3>

 <h4>File Locking (<em>requires new client and server</em>)</h4>
