But wait, whenever I call svn commit successfully, the output of
that command tells me "Committed revision xyz" which is exactly the
revision number the changed file gets (its also reflected in it's Id-
keyword). And that is the same Revision the directory containing the
changed file contains and the upper directories get after a following
svn update.

So it could be possible to update a fixed file in the Project main
directory
with that revision number even after a svn commit.

Am I right?
