<div class="moz-cite-prefix">Honestly, I removed the
svn_load_dirs.pl section because I couldn't maintain it
After writing the original section for the 1.0 version of the
book, I was later told I'd explained explained some things
incorrectly, that the section was hard to follow, etc. And that's
to be expected -- I've never really used the script myself, and
certainly was no subject matter expert on it. Further, the script
has never been an officially maintained part of Subversion, hasn't
(at this point) really been touched or updated in 5+ years, etc.<br>
What I perhaps should have done in the 1.8 book is left a mention
of script and pointer to it and its README file. That way, at
least, folks have a starting point. And I'm happy to re-add
such. But I don't feel particularly compelled (or qualified) to
write thorough documentation for svn_load_dirs.pl at this point,
nor to try to work as much into the larger vendor branch narrative
of the chapter.<br>

section about "<a moz-do-not-send="true"

<div>It could be that my confusion is the result of the attempt
to compare these sections of SVNBook 1.7 with 1.8 but I've
tried to follow the step-by-step instructions in the nightly
SVNBook (forgetting about 1.7 version) and still consider that
the section has <a moz-do-not-send="true"
questions than answers</a>.<br>
I guess that from reader's point of view, SVNBook 1.7 provides
users with the complete solution / instruction that will allow
to pick up deletions as well as additions, etc but SVNBook 1.8
is missing it. I see <a moz-do-not-send="true"
hint about <strong class=""><code></code></strong>"svn add
--force"</a><strong class=""><code> </code></strong>to pick
up additions but what about deletions, for example?<span
class=""><code></code></span> Am I overlooking something
