svn auth help text review

Hi,

the svn help auth text reads as follows:

> Manage cached authentication credentials.\n
> usage: 1. svn auth [PATTERN ...]\n
> usage: 2. svn auth --remove PATTERN [PATTERN ...]\n
> \n
> With no arguments, list all cached authentication credentials.\n
> Authentication credentials include usernames, passwords,\n
> SSL certificates, and SSL client-certificate passphrases.\n

And fingerprints? Is that missing? r1573701 speaks about them.

> If PATTERN is specified, only list credentials with attributes matching one\n
> or more patterns. With the --remove option, remove cached authentication\n
> credentials matching one or more patterns.\n

So that's an OR match for patterns given?

> If more than one pattern is specified credentials are considered only they\n
> match all specified patterns.

That specifies an AND match, and is not how I read match_credential() in
auth_cmd.c. Could you clarify?

> Patterns are matched case-sensitively and may\n

r1573701 switched on case-insensitively for SSL hostnames and
fingerprints. Could you clarify?

Thanks,
Andreas
