In SVN, the revision numbers are always strictly monotonically increasing, but
they might have "gaps". That is, in the gnucash-docs/trunk directory there
haven't been any changes between 19355 and 19360 (but elsewhere in the
repository there have been changes). This means in terms of the gnucash-docs
directory, the content corresponding to these two revision numbers is
Also, when switching between different revision numbers, usually you don't
accidentally "do any harm" in SVN. If the unlikely event of a source file
conflict occurs, you will clearly get some messages about "Conflict". If those
don't occur, no problem whatsoever occurred.
