I have a svnsync command running and it is displaying output like:

Committed revision 39.
Copied properties for revision 39.
Committed revision 40.
Copied properties for revision 40.
Committed revision 41.

But how do I see that these revisions have been 'checked in' / synced properly right now (when I'm running the sync).

I tried: svnlook info /var/svn/repos

But that just shows something like:

2009-07-21 11:48:59 +0000 (Tue, 21 Jul 2009)

and then it jumped to:

2011-01-19 11:23:43 +0000 (Wed, 19 Jan 2011)

(and then back to 2009).

I ended up doing:

nohup svnsync synchronize svn:// &
[1] 23928
nohup: appending output to `nohup.out'

and then

tail -f nohup.out
