The Value of HEAD

     Thanks. I do need it from the client after a
checkout. I could parse the message ""revesion ...".
The revision no. gets stored in the local copy. It
would be nice to get it via proplist/propget.
something like a property called svn:rev-no.......

-> That only works on the server. I believe Anita
needs this

>From the book:

HEAD The latest revision in the repository.

So isn't a trip to the server needed regardless?

>From the client you could call:
svn log URL -r HEAD -q

and parse revision out from the result.

Or perhaps this might be easier to consume from ant:
svn log URL -r HEAD -q --xml

All bases covered now? :)
