From that section:
New users are often confused by how the $Rev$ keyword works. Since the
repository has a single, globally increasing revision number, many
people assume that it is this number that is reflected by the $Rev$
keyword's value. But $Rev$ expands to show the last revision in which
the file changed, not the last revision to which it was updated.
Understanding this clears the confusion, but frustration often
remains—without the support of a Subversion keyword to do so, how can
you automatically get the global revision number into your files?
To do this, you need external processing. Subversion ships with a tool
called svnversion, which was designed for just this purpose. It crawls
your working copy and generates as output the revision(s) it finds. You
can use this program, plus some additional tooling, to embed that
revision information into your files. For more information on
svnversion, see the section called “svnversion”."
...so we're back at Square One. :(
