Re: What's the best and most common SVN Windows (Vista) Client

I believe that TortoiseSVN use to add a few extra files for its own
use under the .svn directory for storing merging information. This may
not be true since 1.5 came out.

Normally, you can interchange using TortoiseSVN and the command line
client without any problems as long as you don't do this during a
merge operation.

If you use the command line client with the Eclipse client, you can
throw Eclipse into a confused state and you have to do a refresh
inside Eclipse, so it knows the status of the files it is using.
