New feature request: svn deploy

From: Dzonatas <dzonatas_at_dzonux.net>

I have a request for a new feature on subversion to make file deployment

The command would follow the scheme:

svn deploy sURL dURL


svn deploy dURL

sURL is the URL to the subversion repository.

dURL is destination to where to deploy the files. Accepts either ftp://
addresses or local file system addresses. (maybe ssh/scp addresses as well)

There would more info than an export and less then a checkout. Only
minimal information is stored in the ".svn" at the dURL location.

A "svn deploy" acts like:

* "svn checkout" if sURL is specified.
* "svn update" if sURL is not specified.

The default would be not to store any backup or local revision of each
file in the .svn directory; hence, it would appear like an "export" but
with the .svn directory to contain minimal information, like hash and
version information.

The command "svn deploy" can be executed on any remote site. If dURL
has already been setup, then svn deploy will find the original sURL
stored on dURL and proceed to transfer files from sURL to dURL as
needed. It may require authentication for both sURL and dURL if auth is
not cached anywhere.

Food for thought for future features. Thanks for reading.
