Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your reply.

I used SVN for around 2 years in one of the organizations where I worked.
There I had moved from CVS to SVN and I really liked it. At present I am
contributing to one of the projects in Gnome and I am using Git there.

I didn't use svn diff with other diff tool. I used vimdiff then and
directly used to diff from .svn directory. But later I got to know that I
could make use of -diff-cmd=vimdiff $6 $7.

I shall look into the community guide and figure out things

Whatever you do may seem insignificant to you, but it is most important
that you do it.
