Re: [vox-tech] Where did all my output go? Bash shell question

Any chance the output is going to stderr and not stdout?  I don't know
for sure, but I could believe that stderr of commands inside functions
gets swallowed if not redirected.  Try putting a 2>&1 at the end of
the svn command in the function.

P.S.  I think the problem you had with ---verbose was with it's position.  try 
  svn --verbose co <project>
