Could you specify your actions and commands and what's wrong does SVN
give?

This is as good a place as any to decry the fact that svn ls is
unreliable. In the case of files added and removed, at least, "svn ls"
gives the wrong answer. I have been unsuccessful in forcing a "sync" so
that I can immediately process managed files. This is one vital reason
for knowing the format of the entries file.

And one vital reason for needing a reliable "svn ls" command is because
svn tags are unreliable. So, I use find(1) to create my own tag files.

Or perhaps I don't understand the much acclaimed "single revision
number" concept of SVN. How do I capture the state of a directory
that's possibly had arbitrary single-file updates and commits in it?
