Thanks very much for the tips, Holger. I have used other source control systems 
before, but Mythtv is the first project I have come across that used subversion, 
so my knowledge of it is naturally a little sketchy.

I *did* look at the pdf. In fact, my usual method of attacking manuals is to 
read them from cover to cover (geek? yes, I know). This ensures that, even if I 
don't remember precise details of any particular operation, I will usually 
remember enough to know roughly where to look in the manual.

In this case I was in a bit of a hurry, since I wanted to use svn to fix a 
particular problem I had. I subsequently fell ill, so never had the chance to 
bulk out my knowledge of subversion. And, hey, it's Myth! Get it working, then 
tiptoe quietly away...

I will have to read things up now 0.21 is about to appear. I will take note of 
the suggestions you made, and write down an appropriate strategy. Thanks again.
