RE: Re: Exporting recently modified files

Speaking as the original sender, yes, it is a synchronization task at hand. My production machine does not and should not have access to our local network resources such as version control repositories.

I have a bunch of scripts under version control which I want to update the production environment with. Currently I manually copy over select files (sometimes packaged in a tarball) whenever I complete a project (i.e. merge into the trunk). I was hoping that svn export would be smart enough to only export files that were modified/added in the last changeset or a specific revision. If I was to be concerned about deleted files, working with svn update would be the better choice.

However, I do understand that the core of my issue is that I need a better build, distribution and deployment procedure. The rsync tool is obviously better suited for distribution and deployment.

So it looks like the answer to my original question is in fact "no", right?

It may be; in that case, a tool like rsync is much better (and much more
likely to be supported by a shared host for example). Keep a local WC
that is dedicated to each remote site, then use rsync (with appropriate
excludes) to update the remote site(s). Export is really only intended
to be an output-only format and isn't helpful in the update case...
