This is drifting away from Commodores, but there is no need to leave Emacs. Although the file-based revision control commands do not work with Subversion, M-x svn-status works rather nicely, especially the command "E" to highlight changes in Emacs diff. However, I usually do commits on the command line, after carefully examining the output of "svn status" and "svn diff". > What I still dislike in SVN, even after some time of getting used to > it, is the revision numbering per _repository_ rather than per > project. I prefer not to maintain a growing number of repositories I understand your pain, since we have a lot of branches in our main repository at work. However, there is not that much per-repository overhead in SVN, at least if you use the FSFS backend. At home, I have a separate repository for each project (my home page, and various pieces of software). Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
