thanks so much for the reply. i am using Tortoise as the client so i
do have to specify the files even if i select a directory. i'll start
using the cl for the adds though, thanks for the tip. ;)
unfortunately we have to straddle the two repos because we have
several development teams/projects working on very unorganized code.
the project i'm working on is using our own codebase so we're
migrating to SVN. once our project goes live we'll be cutting
everyone else over to SVN (hopefully). so the only ppl that have to
deal with the straddle will be the devs on my team. but we're excited
about making it work so it shouldn't cause us too much pain.
i agree that it would be much easier to bring everyone on board at the
same time, especially since we'll be merging the other teams code into
ours along the way.
