Re: svn diff issue

Hi Ben,

Yes, I have. What puzzles me (may be something that I don't understand
here) is that in my case the diff actually does it work only when the
--notice-ancestry argument is provided. And it is showing *only* the
change that I made. Even if there was some ancestry issues with the
file, diff should have given a whole bunch of deleted lines and a
whole bunch of added lines when --notice-ancestry is given. The diff
command, from what I understood, does not care about the ancestry. So,
I expected a normal functioning of diff without the --notice-ancestry.

In other words, I am not able think of a situation where the diff
would work as I expected (that is show only the changes that I have
made) only when --notice-ancestry option is provided.
