Re: Modify a directory

yeah i know, but i have the following problem: i build a model based on
a log, now my problem is, that
i don't know, whether a given node is a directory or a file. so i have
to call svn info for that given node, so i
get that information. now to optimize this, and reduce the number of svn
info calls, if i know, that directories
can't be modified, but only added or deleted (and i can be sure that a M
for modified never occurs in the "log -v" for a directory),
then i don't have to call svn info, because i know the given node is a
file, and not a directory.

of course this is basically the same for files and directories on the
implementation level, but my question was only related to what i get
from the log command.
So sorry if i was unclear, but my question was really, whether it can
occur in any case, that i get a M in "log -v" for a directory.
