This is the right place. It has nothing to do with whether your post is
"in-depth" or not, by the way. The question is simply: is your post
about helping Subversion? Or is it about helping you?

When the first is true (or if both are true), dev@ is the place to post,
because dev@ is about helping Subversion.

When only the second is true, users@ is the place to post, because it's
about helping users. As a not-necessarily-obvious corollary, we also
ask first-time bug reports to go to users@, because much of the time
what the OP thought was a bug in Subversion is really pilot error (so a
thread they thought would be about helping Subversion turns out in the
end to be about helping themselves).

Different RA layers should behave the same way; if they don't, it's
usually a bug.

Can you reproduce this difference in behavior with trunk code or with
the recently-released beta of Subversion 1.5? If you can, I think we
have a bug...
