I just need to get the revision number. The error came along while I was doing
the following:

First, I got an ISVNLocalResource svnProject from an IProject, then:

ISVNRemoteResource remote = svnProject.getRemoteResource();
ISVNRevision revision = remote.getRevision();

That's it. The revision that I got was SVNRevision.HEAD. What I really want is
the number.
