Daniel, it appears that 'svn info' is completely missing from SvnAnt.
As svnClientAdapter does support this function, adding this feature to
SvnAnt should be fairly trivial. This will happen post-1.0.0. If
you're up for submitting a patch, that would be fantastic (just use of
the existing commands as a template), but if you'd at least file an
issue and CC the Tigris user 'dlr', that would also be a big help.

In the mean time, you can either:
1) Try SvnAnt's equivalent of 'svn log' in conjunction with the special
revision "BASE", and pull the revision number out of its output.
2) <exec> a 'svn info'.
3) Parse the content of .svn/ yourself.
4) Write a simple Ant Task which wraps ISVNInfo.

Option 1 is obviously the simplest.
