Adding files to version control

SVN will only manage files you tell it to handle. This is useful, as many projects tend to have temporary files in the repository folder, from temporary build files to personal notes. SVN will remind you of unmanaged files during commits, giving you a chance to add them to the repository before a final commit.

To add a file through SvnX first make sure the files you wish to add have been placed in the working copy. If the working copy window does not show the files, click Refresh to renew the file listing.

Click on the item you want to add, followed by a click on the Add button in the toolbar.

Confirm your action by clicking OK.

The file has now been added to the repository and will be included the next time youcommit your changes. We suggest committing immediately after adding files to avoid naming conflicts.
