I totally don't follow you. Are you assuming I'm using svn.wp-plugins.org?  I'm not.

And why would I need to go to that trouble when I'm looking at an admin console that says "Upgrade me!"?  My use of Subversion is orthogonal to upgrading at the admin console.

That said, the admin console really needs a "Pin the Plugin to this Version and do not ask about upgrading?"  It would also be good if upgrades could be presented as bug-fix-only upgrades vs. feature upgrades.  These are things I might tackle.

Subversion stores a collection of readme files and when the upgrade process tries to delete them it fails to and then fails the upgrade process.  Am I the first person on this list to experience this?  It fails in a very ungraceful way, i.e. basically it just says "Sorry, sux to be you." ;-)

Sorry if I'm missing something here.
But why don't you just go the *real* SVN way ?

Empty your repository at svn.wp-plugins.org

Then create it again and do a whole commit from your computer.

If I'm not missing something here, that's just about it.

Right ?
