I thought I'd give 
(the latest release (plus bug fixes) of Python) a try. I first backed 
up my Python25 folder (I'm using Win XP). Then with Python 25 open I 
opened the Explorer context menu for the folder and then the 
TortoiseSVN sub-menu. There doesn't seem to have a menu item that 
will enable me to update. I tried Export... and entered 
<http://svn.python.org/projects/python/branches/release25-maint/> as 
"URL of repository", but that choice seems to expect the Python25 
folder to be empty. Can you tell me what to do to just update?
