Subject Reverse blame?
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2014 18:27:12 GMT
I wanted to find the revision where a certain line got removed from a
file. Taking a hint from "svn diff" and "svn merge", I tried doing an
"svn blame" with the revision range backwards. I just get an error:

svn: E195002: Start revision must precede end revision

I see this was discussed before:
http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=1065&viewType=browseAll&dsMessageId=105258

however, I don't see any official comment on it. I did try the python
script mentioned which solved my immediate problem, but I guess I'd
rather it be built-in. Can this use-case be added to blame or should I
just count on always using an external tool? Or maybe there is a
different built-in tool I could use for my purpose?
