Best Practices: local mods to a open source project

I'm fairly new to subversion, so I want to get my head around this
before setting everythign up.

We have a number of apps based on open source projects, often with
local modifications. I want to use subversion to manage the local
changes, and also be easily updated with new releases from the public
projects.

The basic setup is simple enough: /project/trunk as the location for
the public releases, and then /project/branch for the local
modifications.

My question comes in integrating new releases from the open source
projects. Assuming I have

        v1.0 in /project/trunk
        local mods in /project/branch

and I want to update the trunk to v1.01 that was just released,
what's the best way to go about this? Is svk the answer with it's
mirroring features?

Thanks,
Steve
