I don't know how better to explain it. Uh... ACTUAL is the state of a
working copy directory if you imagine its not a Subversion working copy?
ACTUAL is what you see with shell tools like 'ls'?

A "missing" file is caused by the ACTUAL directory lacking a file for which
the BASE tree contains a file of the same name, and for which the WORKING
tree does *not* indicate that the physical file should be absent (such as
would be expected were the file scheduled for deletion).

BASE + Subversion-managed changes = WORKING.
WORKING + non-Subversion-managed changes = ACTUAL.

Is any of this helping?
