Interesting, can you describe your workflow a bit?  

  1. Do you commit a change to subversion every time you update an org
  file, or are commits scheduled through a cronjob?

  2. When you open new files, do you always check them out of the
  repository / work / check them back in?  Or do you work on a local
  directory structure and sync outside of emacs?

  3. Can you post some of the relevant config lines you have, and the
  key sequences you use for commits?  (This may be asking too much. :))

Thanks in advance, I've seen several ways to do this and I'm trying to
weigh the merits of each approach.
