Ugh, sorry.  This is really counter-intuitive.  To properly test
changes, one needs the patch in the tree.  So when I do the final
commit, it is not easy to remember that I need to take it out (and
taking it out means undoing a local commit, which is yet another
operation).

Sorry, but I would expect these problems to continue.  Is it possible
for you to cope in some other way?  Like your merging script noticing
changes and incorporating them into your tree?

Alternately, would it be possible to install some kind of svn hook
that only allows certain users to commit?


Diego.
