Really useful..Thanks!

You saved me some time

If you can add more like Locking and branching, it would be great.

Thanks for the comments, Ian! I agree with Shuttleworth's remarks on the necessity of cheap merging. I have been exploring distributed RCS's, notably Git right now, due to their touted improved merging capabilities. I am already thinking of how to create a screencast about one of these systems.

Chris, great video - I wish I'd seen this a while ago! I've hacked a solution manually in the past without knowing about the 'svn resolved' command - now it is all clear to me.

It was also cool seeing -m and -ci, I'm used to --message and --commit respectively.

And slightly off-topic, I just read this blog entry by Shuttleworth on the cost of merges, it seems vaguely relevent so I'll link it:


Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Chris
