The man page is missing lots of things that would be really helpful. 1) The SEE ALSO section needs cross references to the other programs included with subversion. (e.g. svnlook, svnserver, etc...) 2) The descriptions of the subcommands need more detail, especially descriptions of output. For instance, the update subcommand lists the characters used to flag actions taken, but status doesn't mention anything about what it uses. 3) There needs to be a section that mentions what environment variables affect the operation of subversion.
