Hi Peter,

Well, I'm quite sure you are wrong here. In SVN, a revision reflects the state 
of _all_ files and directories combined together. One change in a single file 
causes a new revision number for the whole project.

Meanwhile I found the reason of the problem:

When I committed some changes on Friday evening, the information in all .svn 
directories had not been updated. With the help of the ChangeLog history, I 
found out that my last commit (I made three in total) was revision 1610.

So what I did was to run "svn update -r 1610", and interestingly there were no 
changes except that the revision was changed.

From that point, all went fine like I expected it.

The only thing that seems necessary to know is that right after a commit, you 
should update from the server to get the .svn directories in synch again.

Because I didn't find this in my docs:

| mstucki at nb02:~/src/svn/typo3/typo3_4-0$ svn status --remote-updates
| svn: invalid option: --remote-updates 
| Type 'svn help' for usage. 

Obviously my version (1.2.3) is outdated. I'll try updating...

Regards, michael
