|Getting Started / Synchronize with Repository|
Sending the changes you made to your working copy is known as committing the changes. If your working copy is up-to-date and there are no conflicts, you are ready to commit your changes.
The Commit action sends the changes from your local working copy to the repository. The Commit dialog box presents all the items that you are able to commit.
Commit dialog box
Enter a message to associate with the commit, or choose a previous message from the Previous messages list (the last 10 commit messages will be remembered even after restarting the SVN client application).
An item that can be committed has one of the following states: added, modified (content or properties), replaced, and deleted. All items that have one of these states are selected in the dialog box by default. If you do not want to commit one of the items, uncheck it.
Unversioned or missing items are not selected by default in the Commit dialog box, unless you have selected them explicitly when issuing the commit command.
The modifications that will be committed for each file can be reviewed in the compare editor window by double clicking a file in the Commit dialog box, or by right clicking and selecting the Show Modifications action from the contextual menu. This option is available to review only file content changes, not property changes.
The Local file status column indicates the actual state of the items and the Local properties status column indicates whether the properties of an item are modified.
The Lock information column is displayed in case at least one of the files in the Commit dialog box has lock information associated with it, valid against the commit operation.
Each of the above options is activated only when you select an item for which the option can be applied.
Your working copy must be up-to-date with respect to the resources you commit. This is ensured by using the Update action prior to committing, resolving conflicts and re-testing as needed. If your working copy resources you are trying to commit are out of date you will get an appropriate error message.
