'svnlook --help proplist' bug

Hi All,

Playing around, I tried all uses of 'svnlook' and found that
'svnlook proplist /srv/svn/REPOS/_test_' (done on the server)
gives me:

svnlook: Missing repository path argument

(At first I did not even know what that should mean - I clearly
gave it a path to a repository.)

'svnlook --help proplist' seems to tell that I did it correctly:

proplist (plist, pl): usage: svnlook proplist REPOS_PATH [PATH_IN_REPOS]

List the properties of a path in the repository, or
with the --revprop option, revision properties.
With -v, show the property values too.

Valid options:
   -r [--revision] arg : specify revision number ARG
   -t [--transaction] arg : specify transaction name ARG
   -v [--verbose] : be verbose
   --revprop : operate on a revision property (use with -r)

I found the solution in the book; PATH_IN_REPOS is not optional. It can
be "/" (for the toplevel of the repository), but it must not be omitted.

Simple & easy fix: remove the "[" & "]" from the message that comes from
'svnlook --help proplist'.

On the server, 'svnlook --version' gives me:

svnlook, version 1.2.0 (Release Candidate 4)
    compiled May 17 2005, 17:01:05

For RC1 the message is the same ;-)

Is this enough for a bug report or do I need to file an issue? :-)

Best regards
   Dirk
