   Here's the cwd contents:

-rw-r--r-- 1 rshepard users 2743 2007-06-01 17:04 gpmi-data.sql
-rw-r--r-- 1 rshepard users 6069 2007-05-29 16:57 queries.py
-rw-r--r-- 1 rshepard users 10451 2007-06-04 10:30 schema.sql

   Here's the current repository contents:

[rshepard@salmo /data1/permitwatch]$ svn ls

   Now I make minor changes to schema.sql and gpmi-data.sql

-rw-r--r-- 1 rshepard users 2774 2007-06-04 15:37 gpmi-data.sql
-rw-r--r-- 1 rshepard users 6069 2007-06-04 15:34 queries.py
-rw-r--r-- 1 rshepard users 10451 2007-06-04 15:36 schema.sql

   Note that emacs changes the mtime of those files.

   Then I commit changes:

[rshepard@salmo /data1/permitwatch]$ svn ci -m "Touched two files."
Sending gpmi-data.sql
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 96.

   Why wasn't schema.sql also transmitted? That's what I'm trying to fix.

   The only text editors I use are emacs and joe (with the occasional use of
vi thrown in). They all change the file's mtime when it's modified. I didn't
know that editors did not do that.

   It was the lack of tranmission of changed schema.sql files to the
repository that made me think it was not properly added.

   Hope this helps to shed a light on the problem so I can get beyond it.
