Ugh, it was me. I switched ZopeVersion from CSV to SVN, moreover the first
revision (25322) used 're' module to parse .svn/entries and later (41452)
has been switched to use 'xml.dom.minidom'. I think extract information
from .svn/entries is more safe way than use svn info/svnversion but however
it require more maintaining effort. So I'll change the parser to make it
more robust if no one objects.
I would suggest using svnversion first if that exists, and possibly
doing a fallback to parsing things by hand. The output of svnversion is
much more accurate than a single revision number.
Current implementation of ZopeVersion also extracts tag/branch information so I
guess it's better to use 'svn info' instead of 'svnversion'.
