Generally, an exit code of 0 means "OK" and != 0 means "uhoh - we're in
dodo". Other than that, it gets completely application specific. Every
application is free to do as they like, but 0 conventionally means "OK".
Conventionally, not definitely.

I really don't know specifically about svn. But check for ==0 or !=0.
That should be sufficient, isn't it?

There might be. See man <whatever>. It is simply not possible to be more
specific than that - it is an anarchy out there! (Thank God!)
