documentation bugs?

arghman
I'm evaluating svnmerge.py for possible usage in our project, and I've
found what appear to be a number of documentation bugs that make me a
bit uneasy....

I've just downloaded the trunk version from
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/contrib/client-side/svnmerge/svnmerge.py
and I get this (on WinXP SP3). My comments in []s

C:\tmp\svn\zark>svnmerge.py
Type 'svnmerge help' for usage
[No, it's 'svnmerge.py help']

C:\tmp\svn\zark>svnmerge.py init
svnmerge: no copyfrom info available. Explicit source argument (-S/--source) req
uired.
[What? There is no -S or --source option, according to the help]

C:\tmp\svn\zark>svnmerge.py --version
svnmerge r<unknown>
  modified: <unknown>

[Huh? Why is this telling me <unknown>]

Also on the wiki page http://www.orcaware.com/svn/wiki/Svnmerge.py,
there's an outdated link to the tigris page.

To submit a patch or bug report, please follow the buddy system as
described here [http://subversion.tigris.org/project_issues.html], but
use the svnmerge mailing list.

The project_issues.html tells you "This information has been moved to
http://subversion.tigris.org/issue-tracker.html"]

svnmerge has been largely superseded by the merging capabilities of
Subversion-1.5.  It's always been a contrib project, anyway.

Some of the bugs you've identified are due to the way you're invoking
svnmerge - as an executable .py script file, rather than something
named svnmerge, and separated from its parent directory, which would
let it figure out its revision.  Others are worth a patch, if you'd
like to provide one.
