RE: Re: Determining origin of branch

Yes, I agree, this was the expected behaviour (i.e. Subversion is behaving correctly), but my point is that "svn log --stop-on-copy" does not under all conditions return the branch copy revision as the user might expect. If the user has done any other copy operation since that user created the branch, --stop-on-copy stops at that copy point rather than the branch copy point. Though it is the correct result, this is probably not the result that the user expected (or, in other words, the result that the user wanted).

You have to remember that Subversion doesn't have atomic renames.
Renames are implemented as copy + delete. So, Subversion is behaving as expected - the rename *was* a copy.

Hope that helps !
