Re: svn export and revision range

Correct, I was thinking of getting only files changed
since a particular revision. I was thinking about it
for more of a distribution perspective. update and
diff are great for development work, but I was just
looking for an easy way to be able to pull changed
files so they could be packaged up and sent of to

More specifically I was thinking of the case of a
large web app. Say 5 pages were changed by developers
and now this update needs to be placed on test servers
by admins. You would just quickly pull the changes,
package them, and let the admins drop it on their
existing installation. I realize that maybe this is
something that really falls outside the job svn is
trying to solve and should be handled externally. I
just saw the export range in the help and got excited
that I could take a shortcut :)

BTW... Subversion is great and I really hope that I
get up to speed between my normal work so that I can
contribute in someway, however small. My only
accomplishment so far has been evangelism.
