I am not sure when the nightly build happens, or what
time patches are posted, so I am never entirely sure I
have got a patch until at least 24 hours have passed.
Is there a quick guide to using subversion anywhere -
without ploughing through the whole O'Reilly book?

svn's command syntax is modelled after CVS. In fact, for checkout,
update and commit you should be able to use it without cracking a book.

For a little more detail, look in chapter 3 for a guided tour, much of
it will be familiar:

<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/svn-book.html#svn-ch-3>

Some specific CVS details are in an appendix to the book:

<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/svn-book.html#svn-ap-a>

FWIW, the book is very good and I recommend it....

The change from cvs to svn was the moment when I changed from using a
simple text editor (kedit :-)) to using a "real" IDE. I'm now using
Eclipse (http://www.eclipse.org/) as an editor with EPIC
(http://e-p-i-c.sourceforge.net/) and subclipse
(http://subclipse.tigris.org/). This makes it (after some configuration
work) a single click of the mouse to get up to date with the latest
revision.

Bart - the nightly build happens at 1am US/Pacific (GMT-8).

If you would like to keep up with Subversion, after downloading a client, run:

svn co http://svn.slimdevices.com/repos/slim/trunk/server

and then for incremental updates:

svn update

Hope this helps!
