Re: Repository Graph shows non existing trunk revision number

Hi Stefan,

thank you for your quick reply.
I have to admit that I look at subversion through TortoiseSVN from a
user view and I like to use this software.
So please follow my thoughts further down.

Just in front: sorry for the lengthly answer...

I think it is just about consistency in the TortoiseSVN then:

When I look in the Reprobrowser:
tag says in Revision column: 12
branch says in Revision column: 11
trunk says in Revision column: 10
this looks to me as if this is the "head" of each branch individually.
Ok, there is only one rev 11 in the whole repository and in every branch.
And I understand that revisions are repository wide.

If I look with svn log at the trunk at rev 11 then the log is empty.
If I look at the repository graph and stop the mouse over the
trunk->rev11 I can see the log of the rev 11 that has relation to the
branch only,
it tells me what the committing to the branch was about. And that info
is optically attached to the trunk.....
If I use TortoiseSVN to log the trunk I can not see any rev 11. I see
rev10 as the top most (one could think: head?).

My Impression:
I would not like to see a log of rev11 on the trunk if the log of the
trunk doesn't show rev11.
And I would not like to see a rev11 in the trunk in the revision graph.
Probably I should have chosen to copy rev.10 instead of HEAD and
everything would have been good.
But I would expect to see the revision and the log of the last commit of
the trunk, here rev10.
