I just taught a class last night on Subversion... it's been several  
years since I taught and I forgot just how downright fun it is...

Only a year ago I was "freaking out" when I saw a "G" flag when  
updating files (afraid of a conflict). I remember a fellow BayPIGgie  
member laughing (amiably) saying "G is for Good Glen." :)

The class I taught was two hours long and for the very beginner. But,  
I seriously doubt that this is a full topic for us.  However, it's a  
possibly newbie nugget (only if we have newbies who don't know how to  
use subversion).

We started with diff and patch conceptually.. diff'd two files,  
shipped the 'diff' to a customer (another student) and patched, etc.  
Then, using those core concepts, we talked about how subversion  
works, from the very beginning (checking out files), to multiple  
editing, conflict resolution, branches, tags, trunk, etc. We only  
briefly talked about merging branches...

Let me know if there's any interest at all....
