This is what's currently on the branch:

svn diff http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk@1661975 \
         http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/branches/svn-info-detail

You can safely ignore the changes in the following files:

  * subversion/include/private/svn_string_private.h
  * subversion/libsvn_subr/string.c
  * subversion/tests/libsvn_subr/string-test.c
  * subversion/svn/similarity.c
  * subversion/svn/props.c

because they're just an abstraction of the string similarity check code
that was formerly used only by propset/propedit.

The new variant of 'svn info' is called

    svn info --show-item=KEYWORD

(it also accepts --no-newline, just like 'svn youngest' did).

The keywords currently supported are: kind, url, relative-url,
repos-root-url, repos-uuid, revision, last-changed-rev,
last-changed-date, last-changed-author and wc-root. They should be
pretty much self-explanatory.

The output of the command is just the single requested value, with or
without a trailing newline, UNLESS there are multiple targets or the
operation depth is greater than 'empty', in which case the output is a
pair of (value, target-path) for each (recursive) target. The target
path is either the (relative or absolute) path of the target or its URL.
There is no provision for whitespace escaping in the value.

Right now, the code raises an error if someone requests the wc-root of
something that's not in a working copy. I'm considering changing that to
simply output nothing at all instead.
