> Steps to reproduce:
> 1. Run svn info --show-item=revision >out.txt
> Expected result:
> The file out.txt contains just the revision number and a newline.
> Actual result:
> The file out.txt contains the revision number, followed by some whitespaces and a newline.
> The issue was passed on to the dev list here:
> Rational for this being a bug/unintended behavior:
> 1. One (if not the) main use-case for the newly introduced --show-item option is to make
it easier to be used in scripts. For revisions, I used that to generate a revision range as
in: -rXXX:YYY. XXX was retrieved using --show-item=revision. Since that produced unexpected
trailing whitespaces the script command resulted in [...] -rXXX   :YYY [...] which obviously
caused an error message which was hard to debug since I didn't immediately get the idea that
the trailing whitespaces might cause the script error I saw.
> 2. It's not what the documentation in the release notes state:
> where it's explicitly shown that the reported revision number does not have any trailing
> {noformat}
> ## Display the youngest revision of a repository:
> % svn info --show-item=revision
> 1693514
> ## Find the root directory of a working copy:
> % svn info --show-item=wc-root
> /home/jrandom/src/svn/trunk
> {noformat}
> Note: The issue was not present in SVN < 1.9, since the --show-item-option was added
in SVN 1.9.0. Also I only tested it explicitly with SVN 1.9.4 but since the code change was
introduced in 1.9.0 I'm quite certain the behavior exists in SVN 1.9.0-1.9.3 as well.
