FTPing changes

Greetings everyone,

Looking through the history of this mailing list, I can see that my
issue has been touched on, but not resolved. Does anyone have any fresh
ideas ...... ?

As I am currently located in an area with only very slow dial up
connections (25%-50% lost packets), and working on a number of large web
projects, I would love to easily be able to FTP just the changes between
two revisions.

In previous posts, people have said to use rsync - great idea, but not
if you only have FTP access ;)

I have played with a few ideas, but to know avail.... Currently, I
export the projects, and manually choose which files and directories I
want to FTP, and hope to remember the files/dirs that I need to delete.

I thought it would be great to be able to export the files/dirs that
have changed between two revisions, but that would not notify of
deletions. Then I thought, 'svn merge' knows all that I need to know,
and played with that idea. But to just get a reliable list of changes, I
would need for svn merge to be able to only do a compare between two
revisions (svn merge compares between two revisions, and then displays
results comparing the previous results to a working copy). This would be
fine if I had a GUARANTEED EXACT local copy of the site, but I can not.

It seems annoying that the information on which files/dirs have
changed/deleted between two revisions is right there, but
inaccessible :(

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Hayden
