Subject Does a WC contain all log messages?
Date Sat, 24 Apr 2021 14:52:00 GMT
If I check out and work on a project I know that the .svn dir contains "stuff"
related to the subversion system.
But is it like with GIT that it contains "everything"? I.e. all older revisions

The reason I ask is that I was looking at svn log in order to figure out how to
see what had happened earlier on the project.

There are two different ways:
1) Connect to the server and get the log info:
svn log -v <URL>

2) Run the command in the working copy dir:
svn log -v

I don't know if the second incarnation will only get whatever I have done myself
when working on the project or if it somehow can show the complete log history.
All projects I have on my system I originated myself so it is not possible to
check (unless I check out some opensource project from the internet of course).

When I tested on my project both versions resulted in the same output, but then
the project was started by me so I obviously have all of the data on my PC
(provided svn saves it inside .svn of course).
