Yes, I can also understand this. Two are my problems, though:

  - Copying a mixed-revision WC seems not to work. As you say, though,
    this is a bug; right?

  - I have a mixed-revision WC with base-revisions from rMIN to
    rMAX. It is possible (though not certain) that this WC corresponds
    to an *identical* single-revision WC. If so, I want to convert my
    mixed WC to a single-revision one. If I do an "svn up -r rMAX"
    then the WC will indeed become single-revision, but there are two
    possibilities: Either "svn up" is "trivial" and nothing changes in
    my WC, or "svn up" is not trivial, and there are other "side
    effects" appart from making the WC single-revision. How can I tell
    what will happen without actually issuing the update command?
    Doing an "svn status" and examining the output seems to do the
    trick; but unfortunately, status is checked against the tip of the
    repo, not against a specific rMAX revision, which is what I want.


P.S. I'm using subversion 1.0.9 (r11378), compiled Oct 16 2004,
     23:29:24. It is the latest packaged version that comes with
     Debian Sarge; namely debian-package version 1.0.9-2
