svn status [path ...]

Print the status of working-copy files and directories. With no arguments, it prints only locally modified items (no repository access). With --show-updates, add working revision and server out-of-date information. With --verbose, print full revision information on every item.

A

Item has been replaced in your working copy. This means the file was scheduled for deletion, and then a new file with the same name was scheduled for addition in its place.

C

The contents of the item conflicts with updates received from the repository.

X

Item is related to an externals definition.

I

Item is being ignored (e.g., with the svn:ignore property).

?

Item is not under version control.

!

Item is missing (e.g., you moved or deleted it without using svn). This also indicates that a directory is incomplete (a checkout or update was interrupted).
