Summary: Can't enter BASE, HEAD, etc into View rev fieldCan't enter HEAD into View rev field in browser

Those are called revision keywords. In subversion 1.0.x there are four:

  • HEAD
  • BASE
  • PREV

The SVN book says (in section 3.2):

Note: PREV, BASE, and COMMITTED can be used to refer to local paths, but not to URLs.

That means these three keywords only work for working copies, and are therefore of no use in Trac.

Changing summary accordingly.

An alternative to accepting the string "HEAD" in the View rev: field would be to add a "View Latest Revision" link, similar to the corresponding link on the file log page.

Actually, entering either HEAD, LATEST or TRUNK in the "View rev:" field should bring up the latest revision. So, the requested functionality is already implemented, as far as possible (since at least 0.6).
