I forgot to add, or me be better educated but that's the most difficult

Ah ha!.
So, it becomes a two step process to "upgrade" a project tree.
1. Upload and add the new folders and files to the project tree.
2. Apply the patch which links in the new files.

Can I see the reflection of a red face in the monitor?
Re-read the svn dos and came across:-
"The file format used by *patch* is quite limited; it's only able to
tweak file contents. There's no way to represent changes to /trees/,
such as the addition, removal, or renaming of files and directories"
