>             Project: Maven SCM
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: maven-scm-provider-svn
>    Affects Versions: 1.0-beta-3
>         Environment: Windows XP SP2, Sun JDK 1.4.2_12, Maven 2.0.4, SVN 1.4.0
>            Reporter: Nathan Beyer (Cerner)

>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.0
> When performing a 'release:prepare' on a project that contains an 'svn:externals' linked
folder, the following warnings and messages are produced.
> [INFO] Unknown file status: 'X'.
> [WARNING] Unexpected input, the line must be at least seven characters long. Line: ''.
> [INFO] Unknown file status: 'P'.
> I'm not sure what's causing the "unexpected input" and "P" message, but the "X" message
is from a folder in the project that is pulled into the working copy via the svn:externals
property [1]. This is an SVN property that's set on a folder and makes the SVN client perform
an additional "unversioned" checkout of a URL. The externals will only exist in the working
copy. When the "svn status" is run on a project an external item is given the status "X".
As such, the status X can safely be ignored and treated as either "no modification" or "ignored"
would be.
> Here's a dump of the help from svn status for more information.
> C:\temp>svn help status
> status (stat, st): Print the status of working copy files and directories.
> usage: status [PATH...]
>   With no args, print only locally modified items (no network access).
>   With -u, add working revision and server out-of-date information.
>   With -v, print full revision information on every item.
>   The first six columns in the output are each one character wide:
>     First column: Says if item was added, deleted, or otherwise changed
>       ' ' no modifications
>       'A' Added
>       'C' Conflicted
>       'D' Deleted
>       'I' Ignored
>       'M' Modified
>       'R' Replaced
>       'X' item is unversioned, but is used by an externals definition
>       '?' item is not under version control
> <snip/>
