When an item is excluded using --set-depth=exclude, svn status has no option for displaying such items. There is currently a --no-ignore to show ignored items, but no equivalent for excluded (sparse) items. http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/subversion- users/201405.mbox/%3c20140526142423.GD19785@ted.stsp.name%3e Using svn list, one can see items that have been excluded, but one must compare that output with the working copy listing to notice differences. Perhaps --no-ignore can be expanded or a new option --show-excluded can be added to svn status.
