> If you specify a single date as a revision without specifying a time of day (for example 2006-11-27), you may think that Subversion should give you the last revision that took place on the 27th of November. Instead, you'll get back a revision from the 26th, or even earlier. Remember that Subversion will find the most recent revision of the repository as of the date you give. If you give a date without a timestamp, such as 2006-11-27, Subversion assumes a time of 00:00:00, so looking for the most recent revision won't return anything on the 27th.

> This lead me to believe that by specifying a date and time range, I could be sure that I only received commits made between the two. My post is addressing an issue that arises despite doing this. If this is not considered a bug (although I personally feel that it is), then perhaps it could at least be clarified a bit further in the documentation.

I agree the wording of the book is not clear on this point. You should submit this feedback to the authors of the book; they have their own mailing list.
