As the second line clearly states /projects/pr01 are the original files

/work/pr01 is the working copy, where I checked the files to as per the
instructions in the setup guide?

I'm talking about my web server - I use an FTP client to update files from
my local PC to the web server - what's so hard to understand about that?

How else could i update a central copy so that when others try to access it
they get the latest copy? I did read the introductory parts and followed
them exactly... That's how I got to this point... Thanks for being so
condescending and helpful though!!!

The manual said to create a repository from original files - which I did
It then said to check out to a local working copy - which I did
I then modified my local working copy
I then committed changes back to the repository - exactly as the
documentation suggested

If everything was working as expected I wouldn't be in here asking a
question - If I knew what I was doing I wouldn't need help!!! If providing
assistance is such a chore, why bother coming here? Or is it just to make
yourself feel smarter than everyone else because you learnt how to use this
software before I did... Is that how this place works - newbies aren't
welcome because they're not as smart as you?
