I have some doubt about the behaviour of "svn annotate", hopefully
someone can enlighten me.

Is this assertion true ?
    When "svn annotate" outputs a line with: $REV $USER $LINE
    it means that $REV is the biggest number so that "diff -r$((REV -
    outputs a line containing "+$LINE"


Consider adding lines 1 through 10 in rev 1.

In rev 2, add a line at the beginning of the file.

In rev 3, delete the first line of the file.

Now, "svn annotate" will tell you that the current line 1 was added in rev
1. But the latest revision that added a line that was numbered 1 *in that
revision* was rev 2.

But why would you expect that to be true?

The underlying problem is that line numbers are transient things, the number
of a particular line of information changes when changes are done to other
parts of a file, and so a line's number will change all the time.
