How to manage one project but wtih two repositories

Hello All,

We are using SubVersion and TortoiseSVN for a Visual Studio 2008 project as part of a small 5 - 20 person team. This is a non-commercial pilot project with the primary aim to develop our scrum / agile development skills.

We do all our development work on a private server that I maintain, and it works very well for all the members of the team.

Approx twice per month, we try to post our latest version of code to a public SVN site, www.Codeplex.com

On this public site, we allow many more people to connect and download our source code, last time we updated the code, we had 500 downloads.

Sorry to for the long winded introduction, but now I can state our problem.

What is the best approach to keeping the public site updated periodically.

In other words, we commit on a daily basis to our private server used by 10 - 20 people, but once or twice a month, we can to make a snapshot of that code and {Commit / publish / replace} the code on the public site.

Up to now, our main developer has done this sort of manually, but it is taking him two to three hours.

I initially thought about the following steps

1) export all code from the working folder of the private repository
2) check out all code from public site
3) delete all code from working folder of public site
4) paste previously exported files from step 1
5) commit all files back to public site.

This seems all wrong however, and I doubt it will work. I assume that there must be a better way, perhaps using branches, but I am really not sure what is the best way to do it.

Is my question even clear here?
if not please post back and I will try to expand on which aspect is unclear, or better again, i will have to re-write the whole question.

Thanks in advance for your assistance, as always on forums, I appreciate your time.

Mark Breen
