Re: Modified, added or deleted in "Changed Files"

in my case, I need the "action" column for documentation purposes... some
kind of "report of changed files"...

particularly, our project is divided in many sub-projects, each with its own
branch, when we finish a project, we need to provide the list of changed
files...

currently I use the following script:

svn diff URL_TO_TRUNK@XXX URL_TO_BRANCH@HEAD | grep Index: > my_report.txt

where:

XXX is the last "merge point" between TRUNK and BRANCH

this script generates the list of changed files in my project, but I have no
way to know if files where added, removed or modified.... and other people
in my project hate to use scripts, they want a graphical interface...

I thought that with the new "Changed Files" I could resolve my problem, but
without exporting the "Action" column I can't

I don't know if my need is too specific.... Does anybody else need something
like that???
