Repository View - Revision numbers

Ok.... It is clear now that Subclipse simply displays the information that
is passed from subvesrion.

I can understand the concept of using a 'cheap copy' to save space and speed
up branching/tagging.

I do however think it is a contridiction to have a different 'latest revsion
number' than is what is displayed in the log for that file. As you say, I
can't see the subversion developers changing this either.

Thankyou very much for your help with this.

Run svn log against the URL.

It is a feature. This is part of the "cheap copies" in Subversion. You
will definitely not get anywhere with the Subversion developers in thinking
this is a bug.
