Confusingly, svn update --dry-run does not work. The mailing list taught me that the command is svn status --show-updates. However, svn status --show-updates tells you about what files in your working copy will be modified only. It won't say whether the modification is an update, delete, addition, etc. Is there a way to get this information without actually doing the update?

Thanks Erik,

that helps. I'll need to parse this xml output today, but it would be cool if that information could be automatically output by svn status --show-updates in a future release, don't you think?

Anyway, thanks again
