The difference between this and svnsync is that svnsync, from what I
understand, will mirror a repository from one svn server to another.
Svn2ftp is designed to work more like a controlled export.  It doesn't
replicate the repository, just the head revision of the repository.
And it works over FTP, which I believe is different as well.

A good example of where this might be useful could be a large website
in a subversion repository, where once a change is committed needs to
show up on a remote server for preview.

Thanks for your response.  Let me know what you think.
I guess I'm not seeing what the compelling advantage of this is over
just using Subversion itself (either 'update' or 'export'), or using
'rsync'.  I presume you've seen



I would assume that this is because many cheap web hosts only allow
access to files over ftp, and no shell account.  (Unless rsync works
over ftp...)


Yes, that's right.  This is for occasions where your access to a given location involves FTP and not much else.  I have seen this to be useful several times, and I wished something like this existed.  I figure there has to be some other people who would find this useful as well.

If nobody finds it useful enough to publish to the community, that's fine.  Yes Karl, I had read the document you linked to.  I just thought I would offer it to the community in case someone needed this as much as I did.

Thanks for your attention,
