Re:Questions: svn add (and svn move)

Thanks for the reply.

Not out of the box. The reason is that a lot of processes add files that probably should not be committed to the repository: (latex and source code compilation).

Just to be clear, then: out of the box, svn will commit pretty much any and all changes I make to a directory, including adding files. It's only if I twiddle with it that I really need to use svn add so that I can make sure that svn only grabs the files I want it to during commit, right?

You would need a wrapper script for this.

Okay, that's what I figured. Part of the holdup on implementing this setup is simply finding the time to reorganize my 2G of personal files so that they're how I want them to start.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:) That'll cut down on my need to deal with it later.

On the other hand, subversion is great if you need to synchronize work directories between different computer systems.

I say that very thing to myself every night when I go to manually syncronize changes between my work laptop and my stuff at home, or when I go out of town and need to get the pictures I've taken off my laptop and properly placed.<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:)
