See the output of svnversion --help below.
Maybe the script uses svnversion and the working copy was somehow
usage: svnversion [OPTIONS] [WC_PATH [TRAIL_URL]]
Produce a compact 'version number' for the working copy path
WC_PATH. TRAIL_URL is the trailing portion of the URL used to
determine if WC_PATH itself is switched (detection of switches
within WC_PATH does not rely on TRAIL_URL). The version number
is written to standard output. For example:
$ svnversion . /repos/svn/trunk
The version number will be a single number if the working
copy is single revision, unmodified, not switched and with
an URL that matches the TRAIL_URL argument. If the working
copy is unusual the version number will be more complex:
4123:4168 mixed revision working copy
4168M modified working copy
4123S switched working copy
4123P partial working copy, from a sparse checkout
4123:4168MS mixed revision, modified, switched working copy
If invoked on a directory that is not a working copy, an
exported directory say, the program will output 'exported'.
If invoked without arguments WC_PATH will be the current directory.
-n [--no-newline] : do not output the trailing newline
-c [--committed] : last changed rather than current revisions
-h [--help] : display this help
--version : show program version information
