I've got a issue about the svn mergeinfo command:

The help message output of svn list (SVN 1.5 no RC) will print out the
svnsles9:/home/kama/testvc/book-trunk # svn mergeinfo --help
mergeinfo: Query merge-related information.
usage: mergeinfo SOURCE-URL[@REV] [TARGET[@REV]]

  Query information related to merges (or potential merges) between
  SOURCE-URL and TARGET.  If the --show-revs option is not provided,
  display revisions which have been merged from SOURCE-URL to TARGET.
  Otherwise, display the type of information specified by the
  --show-revs option.

Valid options:
  -r [--revision] ARG      : ARG (some commands also take ARG1:ARG2
  --show-revs ARG          : specify which collection of revisions to
                             ('merged', 'eligible')

Global options:
  --username ARG           : specify a username ARG
  --password ARG           : specify a password ARG
  --no-auth-cache          : do not cache authentication tokens
  --non-interactive        : do no interactive prompting
  --config-dir ARG         : read user configuration files from
directory ARG

The description "SYNOPSIS" in the book gives only
"mergeinfo [TARGET[@REV]..]

What is correct ?

The option "--show-revs ARG" is not mentioned in the book...
The output in the Examples book is not Ok....

Kind regards
