Yes... but then it will be updated next time the file is committed, too (I
think what edA-qa is asking for is a way to have the revision number that
a bugfix/feature is introduced mentioned in a "release notes" file,
updating the "release notes" in the same commit as the bugfix/feature goes

If there is not a requirement for this to go in at the exact same commit,
(eg it may be acceptable to run a script to update the release notes just
before doing a release), then it might be worth considering writing a
script that can generate the release notes from the output of 'svn log'
(you could put specially-formatted comments in the log messages to
indicate that they should be turned into release notes; or indeed I
suppose you could have a separate revision-property for each commit that
specifies the release notes associated with that commit...)
