subversion new project recipe
Other folks have written very nice documentation about what version control is and how to use Subversion. This document describes how to create a new project in Subversion.
svnadmin create ~/svn
#add the project and trunk directories (here I don't quite actually do it -- I should add a couple directories deep)
svn mkdir --parents file:///home/username/svn/whitelist
#on a windows machine, the command may work with an explicit drive letter in it
svn mkdir --parents file:///c:/rl/svn_repos/whitelist
#enlist in the trunk project
svn checkout file:///home/rjl/svn/whitelist .
#tell subversion the names of the files in the trunk project
svn add *
#actually upload the files into the project
#modify a file
#see if there are any files that should be in the project that are not
#send the latest files up there
