No. It gives you the log from BASE to HEAD, just like it says. BASE is
the current revision the last time you updated your working copy. In
effect, this will show you the log messages for all the changes that
have been made since your last update, so you know what to expect when
you do "svn up".

The default is -rBASE:1 if you don't specify a revision range.
