AFAIK, that information is not saved by svn. The convention at
my company is to include that information in the commit comment.

I think the docs are implying that you can see the list of files
affected by the revisions 180:184 and have that jog your memory
that you merged 180:185, but not that svn can tell you specifically
that you did that merge.
