Hi, I created an issue in Jira: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4737 and added a reference back to this thread in that one. I'm wasn't sure how to set some of the fields, but hopefully sufficient to track down the issue in the future.

Haven't made a reproducton script before so I'm not sure how you want the issue to be explained, but I first did the behavior that I think is incorrect and did a status+echo and then the same from a subdirectory with a second status+echo. > > If you instead wanted me to make a bug report on the tracker, let me know. > > /Chris Thank you very much for writing and providing this script. I agree that this problem looks like a bug. If you have time to do so, please file an issue in our issue tracker. The problem also affects 'svn diff'. A reasonable expectation would be that the reverse of a diff which adds something is a diff which deletes something, but in this case the reverse diff produced by SVN is an empty diff: $ svn diff -c2 ^/trunk/A Index: foo =================================================================== $ svn diff -c2 A Index: A/foo =================================================================== $ svn diff -c-2 A $ svn diff -c2 ^/trunk/A Index: foo =================================================================== $ svn diff -c-2 ^/trunk/A $ -----Inline Attachment Follows-----
