      Description

      svnversion's man page contains:
      
      NAME
       svnversion - Produce a compact version number for a working copy.
      
      svnversion --help rightly puts "version number" in scare quotes:
      
      Produce a compact 'version number' for the working copy path
        WC_PATH.  TRAIL_URL is the trailing portion of the URL used to
        determine if WC_PATH itself is switched (detection of switches
        within WC_PATH does not rely on TRAIL_URL).  The version number
        is written to standard output.
      
      Indeed, the output may be a number, but it may contain more than a number (for
      example, "4123S"). It would be more exact to refer to a "version string".
