  9. Tidy up those files with ? marks that you do not want committed, by adding to svn:ignore
  10. Commit the project
  11. You should see each folder with a little ‘database’ symbol, without any white stars which means that that everything is perfectly synchronized
  • The top of my project has a white star, usually a commit and update sorts this out, but not always! (A topic for a new Blog!)
