subversion & patch management utilities

Hi,

I'm quite new to using svn and I decided to start
using it to track
changes in third-party software for assessing impact
(mainly api
changes) that may affect our own software. I am
combining this with
issue tracking using trac from edgewall.com. I have
setup DAV access to
the repository and can use trac to browse the
repository and changesets.

The approach that I am taking is to import the first
release into an svn
repository. I then use unix diff to generate a patch
file that contains
the changes for a subsequent release. After applying
the patch file to
the working copy of the first release, my working copy
now has the
changes for the second release integrated. The problem
is that this does
not account for files added or deleted between
releases. Are there any
utilities available that can generate a patch file, an
archive of the
added files and a set of svn add and svn delete
operations.

Is there a site containing resources such as the
repository management
utilities I am looking for?

Thanks,

Graeme
