Subject Re: Weird Behaviour: Files reverted that didn't show up in a status --no-ignore
Date Fri, 04 Mar 2016 23:50:36 GMT
It was 1.8.14 client.
It just said "Reverted <filename>" and the subsequent "svn status" made no mention of
the <filename>. ---- Brent

Would still be unexpected / weird, but: is it possible that those
files were not really changed, but that 'revert' simply generated
unnecessary notifications (showing 'reverted file X' for files that
weren't really changed)?

You didn't mention the version of svn client. Maybe it's a
notification bug in the client that's already fixed?
