Using Ubuntu and SVN to Update the WordPress Repository

 

Ubuntu Subversion for WordPress Plugins I have been using Linux / BSD for over a decade, but Windows has always been my core work station, until recently. Software such as TortoiseSVN for Windows and SCPlugin for MAC, makes updating the WordPress Repository via Subversion somewhat simple. Even if you forget what to do, dozens if not hundreds of Websites clearly explain the process with nice pictures, videos, and explanations galore.
