I used your suggestion of "repos" instead of "OOD". The way the existing
names in JavaHL are specified, I think they make more sense. I also
corrected your JavaDoc to say for example that a value is Null when it is
NOT out of date.

I think it will be OK to just change the constructor.

You could do a couple of commits, and then use Switch to switch the WC
back to revision 1. Then you could run status -u to bring in the server

I have attached my patch.

I suppose, but since there was only one Kind field already, we are already
living with this. Given the way we use this, I am not sure it would pose
too much problem.

How about URL? That one doesn't make sense to have a new field for. I
think the rule should be if the URL field is going to be Null, and the
oodURL is not null, then we should fill the existing URL field in with the
oodURL so that there is always a URL. Currently, I think the only time
you get a null URL (and kind) is when svn status finds a new item in the
repository. I think it would be better to just have a single URL field. I
think we could get away with a single kind field as well, but your point
does raise an interesting scenario where having two fields might be

Finally, there is a part of me that thinks we shouldn't add any fields to
the Java Status class. If the user specified to contact the server, then
the 5 ood fields should just be mapped into the 5 existing fields. In my
opinion, that is how it probably always should have worked, and is the
more expected behavior. As long as the info is there, I can deal with it.
