I should point out that this is a temporary solution for a couple of
developers, and hopefully in the next couple of months we'll be able to set
up SSH. IT departments - who'd have 'em!!

Thanks for all the SVK suggestions. Apart from the fact that it's not the
easiest thing to work out exactly how SVK works from the website, I have a
couple of concerns. If we were to use email to sync the SVK repository, then
one option would be to send the remote repository. However, this is huge so
is not really an option.

The other option I guess would be to use patch, but then this still suffers
from the original problems of not taknig into account file additions and
deletions (unless SVK works differently).

To be honest, I'd have a really simple solution if there was a diff/patch
utility that could handle SVN's file additions and deletions.

Thanks
Jay
