Yep, it's an empty delta, but it's not a difference between RA layers, rather a difference between how the repository sends this revision over the RA layers vs. how the repository dumps this.
We definitely don't want these outputs to be different. That can't help anybody.
I'm not sure either of these outputs is correct. As I discussed in a previous thread, I think a no-op 'change' record is an artefact of the FS layer that is not wanted (nor fully supported) above the FS layer, and so should be hidden above the FS layer. So neither svnadmin nor svnrdump should output a record here at all.
