The revision number you originally checked out is not recorded
anywhere that I'm aware of. If your repository is being served with
Apache, you *might* be able to find the information in the Apache log.

To find out your changes, your colleague only needs to consult the
output of "svn log". All your commit messages about your changes
should be there under your username. Then "svn diff" can be used for
each revision to see the specific changes.

Ideally you and all your colleagues would be subscribed to a
"changes" mailing list to which all commits in your repository are
automatically sent. That way, everyone immediately knows when
something has been changed and can also review the code right away
and offer suggestions or improvements. Or if you don't like mailing
lists I'm sure you could also implement it as an RSS feed or a Jabber
or IRC or Twitter notification.
