Hi Carl,

This is great!

I like the discussion about the svn commit, but as I've been thinking about the website version
of this what I have been thinking about since I've never really done it is describing how
to use patch to apply a patch created with "svn diff". I have been doing research on the topic
and I see that there may be an "svn patch" in version 1.7, but I think we are at 1.6.

I would like to improve the page as follows:

(1) In the instructions about creating a patch:
(a) Ask the for the directory level in the repository where the patch should be applied.
One way to do this would be to save the output to svn info:

svn info >

(b) A list of files to be removed, if any. (I've read that patch does not handle this, but
have not tested that information.)

(2) Instructions to the apply a patch step should include:
(a) Going to the correct directory level, possibly with
(b) Removing files, if that is part of the patch.
(c) Running "svn status" to check for files that need to be added with "svn add"

(3) Additional pointers to svn information like

What do you think?

I probably won't get to it for about 48 hours.
