Question: SVN the down and dirty

So I have done a bit of svn’ing. I use RadRails as well so SVN is built
in.
Question though is I’m not sure exactly how it fits in my Ruby / Rails
tree.

I imagine I can create one directory, say called SVN and then within
there
all the sub directories for various svn repositories I might want to
download / update from.
But what I am not sure about and don’t want to mess up my Rails install
is
how do I get those plugins into a particular application. Just to
mention I
have no remote sites, everything is local to my machine.

TIA
Stuart

The usual way is as follows:
when you start out on a new application, create a new folder on your
local machine containing three empty folders.
eg:
/myapp
/branches
/trunk
/tags

Then cd into the trunk folder and create your rails app: rails myapp

You then have the skeleton of your app in place and can import this
into your subversion repository. Once you’ve reached this stage you
can then commit changes as you work.
