Question for the SVN experts out there.

I am putting in the windows port. As Ben said I need to put in the
original version that I worked on, then upload the differences.

I am unsure what box version I started working on - somewhere in 0.08
but I believe it may have had some of Bens patches in it.

What is going to be the best way to pull in this version (simplified
please I am not a svn expert!!!)

I'm afraid that won't really do what we need.

You need to take the original files you started modifying, then do a =20
diff between them and your version with the -uw option. Then copy =20
trunk to nick/win32, check that out (NOT trunk), apply the diff, and =20
commit the modified files. Otherwise we lose all the lovely tracking =20

I'm not an expert on this, so if you're not sure, ask on the list. =20
