'svn log' displays information about revision trees. A revision tree
not only represents a tree (a state of the repository), but also a
changeset. A changeset is a specific set of changes to a specific set
of paths. Ergo, every revision has a list of "changed paths" associated
with it, i.e. "what commit produced this revision?", and 'svn log -v'
will show that set of changed paths on each revision. It's not specific
to copying or merging at all.

Take a look at the grey-box on changesets at the bottom of this section
of the book:
