commits overs ssh

Its really a lame question but I'm on the verge of just throwing
myself on my desk and boohooing in big sickening sobs. Maybe someone
can save me fron totally embarrassing my self in front of wife and

I'll admit I flaked out on the manual reading... I read through some
of it but it seems like acres of text are required to get to any
punchlines. I thought I'd try working through it with the `quick

I'm brand new to subversion but a (light) cvs user for quite some
time. Not sure if that is a help or a hindrance.

I'm going along nicely with the manual right up to the point of trying
my first commit across my home lan via ssh, not tunneled, just plain
ssh to another box.

I'm an old hand at the ssh-agent and have that setup so that no dialog
is required.

First I fell into the trap that I see on google, dozens of others have
fallen into. That is, expecting to need a CVSROOT type variable to
establish the repo address.

But the googling tells me repeatedly I don't need it since the repo
address is stored in the checked out module. And I see it there in the
.svn file.

I'm told just the simple ci syntax will do it.

So I'm cd'ed into the top level of my working copy:

svn ci -m "My first commit .. with fingers crossed" <ENTER>

The prompt is quickly and silently returned... nice... Just one

When I test it by going to a directory not part of the co'd module and
try checking out again:

svn co svn+ssh://my.home.server/usr/local/svnrepo/trunk base

I get a brand new copy but .. whoops .. my changes that were just
checked in are not there.

The ci appears to go off with no problems... in total silence.. so
what gives?

At least a solid dozen answers to the question... How to ci via ssh
have told me the same thing... just simple ci syntax is all you need.

So someone please tell me where my stupidity lies.
