You can use the "Last Changed Rev" recorded for the trunk/branch of the
project you are interested in. For directories, this number is updated
whenever any thing under the directory tree is modified, no matter how far
down the tree the change was made. So, if you have this layout:


And you change, say, /project1/trunk/foo/bar/baz.c, the "Last Changed Rev"
for /project1/trunk will be updated to the latest revision number, but the
"Last Changed Rev" for /project2/trunk will be left unchanged. Be aware,
though, that you should always check this number using a repository URL,
because the value stored in the working directory is not updated when you
commit changes unless you added/moved/removed something in the directory
itself. So for example:

bsmith_at_bsmith-laptop:~$ svn info file:///home/bsmith/svn/APACHE3/trunk
Path: trunk
URL: file:///home/bsmith/svn/APACHE3/trunk
Repository Root: file:///home/bsmith/svn/APACHE3
Repository UUID: 6434ac76-2f2b-0410-b569-d6c27546e744
Revision: 2
Node Kind: directory
Last Changed Author: bsmith
Last Changed Rev: 2
Last Changed Date: 2007-03-08 15:46:05 -0500 (Thu, 08 Mar 2007)
