svn_load_dirs.pl and vendor branch for Linux kernels (after patching)

From: maser <maseriyer_at_yahoo.com>

We're trying to store patched kernels in a SVN
repository, using the structure of the Vendor branches
listed in

The current algorithm used is listed below, it is time
consuming to svn add and svn delete files; is there a
better technique or script that can automate this
process ?

#svn checkout current

#cd <to checkout dir>

Get patch from kernel.org and patch current_kernel.org
checked out :

# bzip2 -dc ../patch-2.6.21.bz2 | patch -p1

List all items that need to be added or deleted
# svn status

# svn add <select by hand files to be added from svn
# svn delete <select by hand files to be deleted from
svn status>

compile kernel with patch

# svn commit <patched kernel to current_kernel.org>

tag the current_kernel.org

On the other hand, svn_load_dirs.pl seems to be the
right automated script to use for this job --- but
svn_load_dirs.pl takes a lot of time to run and halts
at .mailman, and then asks to delete the temp
directory,. are we missing anything ?

suggestions appreciated.
