Subject svn log and peg revision
Date Thu, 17 Dec 2009 13:25:36 GMT
I was trying to log a revision range of a branch that has been
moved around a bit: it exists in HEAD under its current name,
but has previously had another name and been under a different
directory layout. But I got the following strange behavour:

  > svn log -rA:B http://.../branches/foo@HEAD
  svn: Unable to find repository location for 'http://.../branches/foo'
in revision B

I expected svn log to look up the branch using @HEAD, and then
give me the log messages for that branch (regardless of it
being renamed) for any revisions between A and B inclusive.
However, it seems that no matter what I specify as peg revision,
I get the same error message if A or B are not referring to
a revision where the branch existed under that name. Is it
just me who thinks this is odd? A bug, maybe?

(Using svn version 1.6.5.)
