Re: svn co without -r gives confusing results

Dear Andreas,

first of all, let me thank you for taking the time to help.
I really do appreciate it.

I will try to be more specific in the following example:

after checking out working copies explicitly, by revision numbers
 svn co file:///repository/projectname/trunk r131 -r131
 svn co file:///repository/projectname/branches/3.02 r146 -r146

I get two directories, r131/ and r146/
and yes, those two checked-out trees do really differ:

$ ls -l r131/archiving/index.php r146/archiving/index.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 18179 2007-04-13 13:42
r131/archiving/index.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 18227 2007-04-13 13:42
r146/archiving/index.php

$ ls -l r131/monitoring/play.php r146/monitoring/play.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 848 2007-04-13 13:41 r131/monitoring/play.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 765 2007-04-13 13:42 r146/monitoring/play.php

$ ls -l r131/application.php r146/application.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 5955 2007-04-13 13:42 r131/application.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 5895 2007-04-13 13:42 r146/application.php

$ ls -l r131/lib/lang.conf.core.php r146/lib/lang.conf.core.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 44738 2007-04-13 13:42
r131/lib/lang.conf.core.php
-rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 45736 2007-04-13 13:42
r146/lib/lang.conf.core.php

(..there are more differences)

However, when I run just

  svn co file:///repository/projectname/trunk th
  A .....
  .......
  Checked out revision 146.

 (a new directory 'th' is created)
 $ cd th
 $ svnversion
 146
 $ svn status -v
 (all files are reported to be revision 146)

  (still in th/)
  $ ls -l application.php
  -rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 5955 2007-04-13 15:34 application.php
  $ ls -l archiving/index.php
  -rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 18179 2007-04-13 15:34 archiving/index.php
  $ ls -l lib/lang.conf.core.php
  -rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 44738 2007-04-13 15:34
lib/lang.conf.core.php
  $ ls -l monitoring/play.php
  -rw-r--r-- 1 jholec users 848 2007-04-13 15:34 monitoring/play.php

  See? their sizes actually correspond to R131.

  Regards,
  Jan Holec <jholec at retia.cz>
