NB. I'm a Subversion noob, just learning the ropes (using Versions.app currently).
This is mostly a question about workflow, subversion and auto-updating WordPress on the live server.
Normally my live site is mirror of a local dev copy (managed with subversion), and each time WP releases a new version, I update my local copy, test and tweak the themes/plugins as necessary, then upload (svn export) that to the live server.
Now that there's a handy one-click upgrade method available within the WP admin area, my live copy can in theory be more up-to-date than my local working copy! Version control chaos ensues.
Can anyone offer some advice on how to integrate WP auto-updating features into a simple svn workflow?
Should I just svn manage my theme folder and let WP handle the app updates server-side?
