   You can take the repo home, keep checking in, bring the repo back, keep checking in at work too. We are only talking about a repository used by one person on a movable storage media here.

   Are you the only person using the repo? If thats the case, all you have to do, is to store your repo on some re-writeable media, and take adequate backup of the medium. But I suspect your problem is more complex than that.

   With whatever experience of svn I have, I think what you need is offline working...

   What you need is probably...

   - is a working copy to take home, make changes (note, not revisions)
   - bring back the working copy to work
   - diff between your working copy and the current repo
   - merge and commit.

   Pl. let me know if you need anything in specific reg the above. You could reach me on irc - freenode server, #svn channel.
