Re: the source code in the SVN client for transferring the delta

Thanks for the suggestion.

I need to modify the SVN source code for a project, so I need to look
through and understand the source code.

I am now working on understanding the flow when a user is doing a commit,
what exactly happens in the SVN client, and what exactly happens in the SVN
server, in the code level.
