Good afternoon, Les.

We have no branches or tags, yet. Everything (so far) is being done
on the trunk. And, I am taking the default when I do an "update"
which I assume is the top level, at least I haven't (to my knowledge)
done anything to default to anything else.

"svn status" shows two directories marked with "?", which doesn't
make much sense, and if I do an update or commit on the parent
directory of those two directories, I get no action.

I am blowing the parent directory away in my sandbox (saving a copy,
first) and then re-updating THAT directory's parent, we'll see what
happens then.
