Right.

That is head...:-(

OK. Let me describe the details.

- In working copy, I do a svn log, I get following revisions,
1,4,5,78,79,81,82 with branch creation on revision 78.

- Revision 82 is a patch merge and has nothing to do with the feature for
which the branch was created. So I don't want it. So I need to look at 81.
(The patch was merge in a hope that ultimately I will merge three svn
branches in one SVN branch. But right now, I am merging 3 svn branches into
another SCM by hand.)

The diff 78:82 is 768517 lines which is hell lot more than I can account for.
but at least it mentions that it is diffing between 78 and 82.

The diff 78:81 is 765087 lines but it mentions that it is diffing revision 0
and 81!!.

And this is the bit that disturbs me. It gives me a feeling that I don't know
what is happening.

Is there a way where I can see the branch progress. AFAIU, you can get history
of either file or directory but not the branch as such. And I don't have hook
emails etc. set up to refer to.

Any help is appreciated. TIA.
