Added files and directories don't get their repository root and uuid
filled in directly in Subversion - 1.5. After a switch or update most
fields are filled in.


Some experiments with svn add, svn mkdir and svn copy should give you
some examples on when you have and when you haven't repository roots and
uuid values.


Somewhere in Subversion 1.6 or 1.7 this behavior might be fixed via the
new working copy database to always contain both values. (Especially as
they are always the same for an entire working copy)


The mkdir case should be fixed in Subversion 1.6. (It is fixed on

Even svnbook gives both the examples. I didn't find any information
regarding when it gives repository root info and when it doesn't.

Hi All
I observed that "svn info" sometimes gives the Repository Root

I couldn't figure out in what scenario I could find this difference.
Does anyone have observed something like this?
