ViewVC lets you download - and others probably do too. But you don't
'upload' to a version control system, you let it decide what changed and
commit the differences. I don't see the point of trying to make a web
browser that doesn't know much about your underlying working copy do
this when good clients exist and can run over http protocol. It might
be possible to make a web interface but something has to know the
version you started from in order to record the changes you made and
currently nothing does this without a working copy checkout. Remember,
the repository and file state may have been changed by others between
your down/upload. It probably wouldn't be too difficult to wrap web
access around a view of a working copy with push buttons for update and
commit but then the down/upload just becomes part of the edit step and
you'd need a separate copy per user.
