Some newbie questions

I am new to subversion (just installed it). After reading the book, faq
and mailing list, some questions remain.

I plan to use subversion with a software that is currently under CVS control.
With CVS, I created a branch after each release and used this branch for
bugfixes and the trunk for new development. Is this method recommended for
subversion as well? And can I assign a sort of symbolic name to this
branch so that the branch name itself is different for each release (e.g.
"release-030919"), but the most recent release is also available as

Some files are used in more than one project. If I put all these projects
into the same repository, is there a way to link these files togehter so
that a change to one position of this file is duplicated in all other?

And last but not least, has anyone written a script (like acu for CVS) to
always keep the trunk checked out? Shouldn't be that hard using the
post-commit hook, but if anyone has already done that, I could save that

Thanks in advance,

Jens Vonderheide
