Hi. I don't know if there is an 0fficial way to do it. Perhaps it would
be nice that there existed a keyword, such as BASE or HEAD to refer to
the copy revision.

My way to do it is a small shell script. First you 'svn blame' on the
file where you found the bug. This is equivalent to 'cvs annotate'.
Then, what you should do, is to go into the directory where you have
your branches and 'svn log --stop-on-copy' each branch, to see when it
was copied.

The following script does it for you:
for FILE in $(ls); do
        echo $FILE;
        svn -q --stop-on-copy log $FILE|tail -n2 ;

You can change it so that it performs the check without a working copy:

for FILE in $(svn ls $1); do
        echo $FILE;
        svn -q --stop-on-copy log $1/$FILE|tail -n2 ;
and you have to pass the path in the repository, as an argument for the

Hope it helps
