Re: I miss ... simplicity

It would be great if you could write a little bit more detailed
example of things which are not so simple in SVN.

For example:

When I do <....> in CVS, I do it in following way:
<CVS command line example>

In SVN I have to do:
<SVN command line 1>
<SVN another awkward command line>
<SVN and so on>

We can't correct our faults if we don't know what they are.
