Re: The case of the disappearing project

I am guessing you ran the wrong command. You cannot take the option
against your WC. You have to run it on the repos URL. Something like
this:

$ svn log -v -r '{2009-05-01}':'{2009-06-09}' http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn

Just replace the URL with the URL to the root of your own repository.
