Hello Mike,
thanks for the response and the confirmation that I may be on the right

I have only recently started using SVN / Tortoise, but so far, I really like
it. I am also using ANKH as a VS add-in, which seems to work well for me

You mention writing a script. I will have a read about how to do it, but do
I presume that I can write a script to do the following

1) check out all code from private server
2) check out all code from public server
3) delete all code from public WC
4) copy all code from private WC to public WC
5) commit all code from newly updated public WC

the worries I have about this routine are
a) I do not like the thoughts of the mass delete, it seems a pity to ask SVN
to keep track of all of these deletes, when it may be only a handful of
files that are really getting updated.
b) how can I delete all code in the public WC anyway, surely it will also
delete the svn folders and this seems incorrect to me.

That leave the option of not actually doing the mass delete, but instead
just overwriting the files, but I really dislike that because it can leave
old unused files hanging around.

In summary, unless I do a mass delete and copy of an exported version, I am
still not sure how I can ensure I post a clean version of the private WC
code to the public site.

Have you any similar scripts that I can review, I guess if I hunt around on
the main site, or in the forums, there are plenty of samples ?

thanks for your time and attention,
