How to Perform a Commit in SmartSVN

If you’ve been following our series of intro articles to SmartSVN, you’ll already know how to download and install this cross-platform Apache Subversion client, and how to checkout a working copy using both the detailed checkout and quick checkout options.

In this post, we’ll cover another essential function for SmartSVN users: committing your changes to the repository.

1) Select the dedicated ‘Commit’ button from inside your SmartSVN installation.







2) The commit dialog will list all the modified files. Select which files you wish to commit, and ensure you enter an appropriate log message.








3) If you need more information about what has changed in each revision, select the ‘History’ button followed by ‘Get from Log…’








4) In the ‘Revisions’ dialog, you can view the previous commit messages, the time and author of those commits, and the path.






5) When you are ready to commit your changes, press the ‘Commit’ button in the Commit dialog.








You have now successfully committed your changes to the repository.
