At a quick glance, the first number is clearly the HEAD revision. Try
doing an 'svn info' of the working copies you have, and put the revision
number reported by that in the first slot. I don't know what the other
two items in the file are; glancing at several repositories, I can't see
a pattern. One has '1rO o'; another has '5 1'. <shrug> Hopefully
someone else knows how to find what goes there, if setting the HEAD
revision number isn't enough...

Good luck!
