No, it means r21904 with 04 replaced with 19, so you don't have to write

Well, it's not totally clear without reviewing the diffs, but here's the
log messages:

r21904 | dionisos | 2006-10-12 11:11:08 -0700 (Thu, 12 Oct 2006) | 8 lines

Stop requiring write access to the working copy when running status -u.

* subversion/libsvn_client/status.c
   (svn_client_status2): Don't necessarily use the adm dir for
   temporary files (in the case of ra_dav: the file to spool the
   server response into).

r21919 | dionisos | 2006-10-13 15:00:22 -0700 (Fri, 13 Oct 2006) | 15 lines

Respect the fact that the working copy was to be used read only.

* subversion/libsvn_client/client.h
   (struct svn_client__callback_baton_t.read_only_wc): New. Signals whether
    we should treat the working copy as writeable or not.

* subversion/libsvn_client/ra.c
   (svn_client__open_ra_session_internal): Initialize the new
    callback baton field.
   (open_tmp_file): Only open a file in the working copy root
    iff the working copy is to be treated writeable. Fall back to
    a temp dir otherwise.
