Re: "svn upgrade" does nothing

I had pretty much the idea that "svn upgrade" and "svn upgrade ." were the
same, I was just trying to scratch both options out of the list.

Upgrading the directory itself fixed the problem.

This makes me think (I'm saying this just seeing the behaviour, I have no
idea how the code works): It seems upgrade didn't go deep into the
directory structure because the root (of the local repo) was already in the
latest version[1]. Does upgrade try to go recursively into all directories,
checking for ".svn" and updating if necessary?

[1] Which also makes me wonder how a single directory got behind in the
update process...
