Suggestion for FAQ

First time posting, so I apologize in advance if this is not the
right place.

I have a suggestion to enhance an existing FAQ "Why does TortoiseSVN not
recognize that a file has been modified?". The existing FAQ explains the
process by which Tortoise determines whether a file has been updated:
 1. has the 'last modification' date and/or the file size changed?
 2. if not: file is not modified
 3. if yes: compare file content with the BASE file
 4. stop at the first byte that differs, mark the file as modified
 5. if no byte differs regarding to BASE, mark the file as not-
    modified In my case, the date and file size had changed, so
    clearly it should be marked as updated.  In this case was that the
    checkout step was done from within an IDE that had SVN support built-
    in.  I was updating the file within that IDE, and the file was
    marked as updated within the IDE but not within the
    Windows/TortoiseSVN file explorer.

The problem was that the IDE was built with SVN 1.7.x support, and the
working copy was version 29, but TortoiseSVN is at 1.9.x, working copy
version 31.

I was able to configure my IDE to use TortoiseSVN instead of the built-
in copy.  Now, when files are modified within the IDE, the file explorer
icon immediately switches to show that the file has been modified.

That was driving me nuts for a couple of hours.  If this helps anyone
else avoid that hassle, then it was worth it.
