Hmmm... about 20' here

I meant to find what has last been committed, something similar to 
'p4 changes -l -m 3' just to see quickly if something has changed, and... 
is worth to run 'svn update'

What I found:
$>svn list --verbose
   1559 karl                  Apr 10 22:20 Build/
   1545 wl                    Mar 16 07:16 Master/

but the last change is now 1561. If I know the real last change number, 
I could run, e.g.:
$svn log -r1559:1561 -v
to see comments etc. and then run 'svn update'.

sorry for annoying, and thanks for patience,
