Well, I tried to solve it with a patch to Subversion, along with the
other problem I described. With this patch, it is possible to specify
what 'svn diff' will print to its output.
$ svn diff --diff-format 'prop-change:none'
(skip property changes from the output)
$ svn diff --diff-format 'prop-change:short'
(just print the file name and property name, do not print actual
$ svn diff --diff-format 'file-added:short,file-changed:short,\
(print just the names of files and directories added/changed/deleted
or whose properties were changed)
Particularly, the problems I reported are solved by throwing
--no-diffs-deleted option is a shortcut for --diff-format
'file-deleted:short', but the option was retained for compatibility.
Of course, the patch is at the "proof of concept" stage. It lacks the
javadoc-style comments; the svn_opt_parse_diff_format function should
perhaps reside in libsvn_subr, and so on. I'll polish it later if
such a feature is welcome.
The patch is against the subversion 1.3.1 and passes 'make check'
tests ok. Feedback welcome.
