Yes, you have misunderstood 'svn diff'. Run 'svn help diff' to see the
full usage possibilities.

'svn diff path1 path2' does *not* compare path1 and path2. That's
because 'svn diff' normally shows local changes to files: so that
command will show any edits made to path1, followed by any edits made to

What you really what to run is "svn diff --old=trunk --new=upstream'.
But there's no code to support that use-case yet. You'll see an error
if you try that.

At the time, there's no way to make 'svn diff' do what you want. You'll
have to use GNU diff, as you were already doing.
