I just wanted to point out that you should not be spelunking in the
repository folder. Once it is created and you set up the config file you
shouldn't really go browsing through it. Use the repository browser to
see what is contained in the repository instead.

The trunk/branches/tag folders are created in the repository. You
generally don't have the tag or branches folders checked out. Usually
you will checkout the trunk folder and/or a subfolder of the branches
folder.

Subject: How To Get Started with Tortiose Subversion

I have been trying for a couple of days to install and use Subversion /
Tortiose, and perhaps have it working, but I cannot figure out at all
what's
going on.

I will eventually use it for ASP.Net, but for now I just want to set it
up
for a single folder with one txt file, then find out how this is
working.

I am using this on one computer with the svnserve method (eg not
Apache).
The help is OK, but I get lost in the create repository section. A
lot
seems to be missing, and it is never clear what they are referring to.

So, say I have a folder with the file in it that I am editing in
c:\Work\Inventory\work.txt
There is a repository at c:\SVNRepository.

How do I set this up so that I can get the file work.txt into the
repository, work on it in c:\Work\Inventory\, then update the changes
back
to the repository periodically. I'd like to be able to see the file (I
suppose also the older versions) in the repository. I'd also like to be
able to take advantage of the trunk/branch/tag setup. (It was unclear to
me
whether these folders belong in the repository, the working folder or
what.)

At any rate, you can gauge my level of understanding. Is there an
explanation anywhere which is clear, step oriented, and does not leave
anything out?

Many thanks
Mike Thomas
