At first I found svk to be very confusing and after going through the
FAQ links, the blog links, I was able to set it up with great
difficulty. For me I had a strange requirement - I wanted to update my
local svk branch changes to my sandbox. This was for the obvious
reason of not loosing data because of a hard disk crash.
Recently I had some filesystem errors (almost a harddisk crash) and I
restored my svk repository by creating a new depot in a different
filesystem and used the code (its called mirror in svk) from my svn
smerge algorithm is really cool. I usually merge the trunk to my local
branch and merge that, local changes to my svn sandbox. So my svn
sandbox always has my local changes + the latest in the trunk.
#svk channel at freenode is good if you want to receive a fast
response and of course there is a mailing list if you don't find
anyone in #svk. Usually I got some of my problems solved hanging out
in that channel :)
