Ok. So since the M is in the second column, that means the properties
are different. Since the first column is a blank space, that means
the file contents are identical. If you would like to exclude such
files from the list, simply pipe the output of "svn diff --summarize"
through grep, sed, or awk, whatever you prefer. For example, the
following excludes lines beginning with a space:

svn diff --summarize \
file:///srv/svn/repositories/source/tags/VERSION1 \
file:///srv/svn/repositories/source/tags/VERSION2 \
| grep -v '^ '
