Re: Any difference between results of checkout and update ?

Shure, there are circumstances where the result may differ: Checkout will
always give you a clean version which is identical to the one in the
repository while update will try to keep local modifications in your working
copy (i.e. Merge them with the changes pulled by update). You can update
parts of a working copy as well, resulting in a version that ist not
available in the repository.
If applied to a clean (i.e. Unmodified working copy) an update should give
you the same result as a fresh checkout.
