You can put whatever you like into the repository, but my
understanding of the instructions I referred you to are that having a
local repository is not part of the usual strategy for updating a
WordPress installation using Subversion.

Yes, of course with a different version number in the tag url.

That depends on your meaning of "install". It will *download* the
files necessary to give you the new version on your server's hard
drive. It's up to you to see if you then need to change any
configuration files to make use of new features of that version.

You can read the script yourself, but as far as I can tell, its
purpose is to install multiple different versions of WordPress
simultaneously. If you run the script as written, I believe you will
end up with separate copies of WordPress 1.5, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3,
2.5, and 2.6, so that doesn't sound like what you want. Feel free to
ask the authors of that script for further information about it.

If you haven't already, you might want to read the Subversion Book,
to get a better understanding of how Subversion works. You can read
it for free online here:


And if you have questions about how to set up or update WordPress,
your best bet would be to ask in a WordPress support venue.
