svk behaviour

Has anyone out there got any experience using svk, if so can you tell me the circumstances under which it is safe to use the normal svn commands, and in particular frontends.

As I understand it svk allows svn repository replication by creating a local (read-only) mirror of a 'master' repo, then a local copy of that to use for stand-alone operation. Then you can merge changes back upstream, or downstream, or both ways at once (sync).

My hope is that you should be able to treat the two repositories (the master and the local copy of the mirrow) as stand-alone svn repositories until you want to sync the two repositories, at which point you simply use the svk commands to do that.

Is this true or is a svk repository different to a svn repository?

I am a newbie, it is true, but I have RT'd as many FMs as I could find. svk doesn't have a lot of docs yet.

If you know of a better place to post this please let me know.

There are many methods for predicting the future. For example, you can read horoscopes, tea leaves, tarot cards, or crystal balls. Collectively these methods are known as "nutty methods". Or you can put well-researched facts into sophisticated computer models, more commonly referred to as "a complete waste of time".
