bug#4179: vc-merge with svn: syntax error in revision arg.

User-agent: Gnus/5.11 (Gnus v5.11) Emacs/22.2 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


when running `vc-merge' for a subversion controlled file (this happens
also with Emacs 23.1.50 by the way) with an integer argument (I'd like
to specify two svn revision numbers), I'm tumbling into this:

svn: Syntax error in revision argument ':10'

(What I'd like to submit to svn is this: svn merge -r '10:8' ...)

vc-merge (in vc.el) thinks that an integer is a branch ID instead of a
svn revision # because of the following function:

(defun vc-branch-p (rev)
  "Return t if REV is a branch revision."
  (not (eq nil (string-match "\\`[0-9]+\\(\\.[0-9]+\\.[0-9]+\\)*\\'" rev))))

Thanks for your good work


If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/share/emacs/22.2/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
