| svn users probably don't notice files are unintentionally removed; git-svn does complain about version-controlled files being missing during rebase (i.e. re-applying local private patches to an updated upstream).

svn marks missing files via a '!' (and unknown/unexpected files with a '?'):

edd_at_max:~/svn/r-devel/tests$ svn st

?       Makefile
!       ver20.Rd
?       Native/Makefile
?       Examples/utils-Ex.Rout.fail
?       Examples/Makefile
!       testit.Rd
?       Embedding/Makefile

edd_at_max:~/svn/r-devel/tests$

Do you REALLY think svn would not know about missing files? There does not seem to be a limit on the disdain for svn among git users. Fascinating.
