Re: svn status issues when deleting a file

Okay, so the number doesnt change when expected. Is it really a problem?
Does it somehow keep you from using SVN? If so, work up a patch and
submit it to the svn devs. Otherwise, just ignore it. So what if a
directory doesnt up its version number when a file within it changes?
