Hey, I never said it's better than TSVN. It only had a feature I would like
to have in TSVN as well. I never used it, I use TSVN for my projects so I
didn't know abuot all these problems. The only thing I liked about Work
was it's capability in showing tag/branch numbers in the log.

See http://pysvn.tigris.org/docs/WorkBench.html

You have to select "Update Project" menu item and fill in the tag and
urls to build the tag/branch information.

Anyways thanks for your time for having a look at this. I must say that
I tried Work Bench with only a test repository so I didn't know it was that

Thanks for the information, I didn't know that in some cases users have
no access to the repository root. But I don't think that would be necessary
as you can specify tag and branch url's and they don't have to access root.
By the way, will revision graph work in this case?

I understand probably I wouldn't need a revision graph very often and
most of the time a clean log would be enough, but I couldn't convince
my co-workers and I wasn't that sure about it either. But basically every
tag or branch of our repository could be represented by a revision number
(which may not be true for every repository). I would like these numbers
optionally cached and optionally see them in the log.
