Hi everybody,
I'm quite out of the debate (and surely out of TSVN coding). So I'm
sorry if I'm going to say something stupid. Moreover, I don't remember
either the discussion about this change.
Anyway, my personal exeperience has convinced me that usability
guidelines as Nielsen's "Even better than good error messages is a
careful design which prevents a problem from occurring in the first
place" are quite valuable. (Please note: I'm not implying here that you
guys weren't enough careful on design issues). So, wouldn't be possible
to make TSVN react to the absence of '%mine' and/or '%base' adding them
in some "standard" way?

Luca
