Thanks a lot for the answer - I already suspected something like this... ;-|
So, back to good old "do it yourself"... ;-) Not that it's complicated,
I just wanted to stay within Subversion as far as possible. :-)

I'm seeing the following example code:

  fs_ptr = repos.svn_repos_fs(repos.svn_repos_open(repos_dir, pool))
  root = fs.txn_root(fs.open_txn(fs_ptr, txn, pool), pool)
  cc = repos.ChangeCollector(fs_ptr, root, pool)

-> shall I use fs.txn_root or fs.revision_root (the revision is not
complete yet, it's just being committed)

Thanks again,

Tino.
