Hi guys,

sorry if my comment is out of place, I didn't follow the thread.

Why don't you move to github?

it's *way* better than svn, branching and merging is very natural. I've already created several projects under github and I can assist you if you need any help.

You'll enjoy much more committing changes with git and github will make more likely for outsiders to submit patches.

If you are an Emacs user you can use magit, a very well designed front-end for git.

does it ask if you use svn commit from the command line? if yes, then
you did something wrong.

Does it ask you for your sf.net password, or for the ssh-key passphrase?

did he merge stuff, or just commit into trunk? (Committing to trunk
works without issues. If someone knows how to merge, tell me!)

it's not THAT bad. read

svn help diff


man patch

(especially the --merge option)

you can do manual merging by svn diff-ing trunk from revision foo to
HEAD, and then applying this patch using patch --merge to your branch.

HOWEVER, this will break svn merging even more.

i'll need to contact sf.net :/
