Re: Subversion not recording commit history

Ryan and Garrett have since explained to me that I, again, largely
confused. While 'svn log filename' does indeed display logging
information, mixed revisions is what is causing my misunderstanding of
"svn log".

After running 'svn up' as suggested, 'svn log' displays _precisely_ what I
expected it to do so in the first place.
A small gotcha, and one I shouldn't have been gotten by since I did read
the daffy book to help me set the software up in the first place.

Again, all, thank you for your help in solving my problems.
I do have to say, this is the most useful users list I've ever subscribed
to. Usually when someone asks a dumb question like mine, they get ignored.
Well done to you.
