Re: problem with peg revision

I played around with svn info and pegged revisions, and had no
problems. Have you've looked at the svn log? That might be a place to
start and maybe help you understand when the name change took place.

One of the issues our users run into when specifying pegged revisions
is that they misstate the revision.

Let's say I removed directory "foo" and committed a new revision
10002. When you look at the svn log, you see that revision 10002 is
where I removed "foo".

Sometimes my developers will do something like this:

$ svn info foo_at_10002

and get the message that they used an invalid URL. I point out that in
this case, they need the revision BEFORE 10002:

$ svn info foo_at_10001

works.

Could there be something like that going on here?
