 [http://sethkinast.com/blog/archive/2005/05/31/svn-wordpress Updating
 wordpress via svn] is [http://photomatt.net/2005/05/19/subversioning-
 wordpress-upgrades/ the hip thing to do these days] (because it's about a
 million times easier than the usual way.) However, the guides I've seen so
 far all tell users to use wordpress trunk, and that's just stupid!

  $ svn switch http://svn.automattic.com/wordpress/tags/2.0.7

 is far longer than

  $ svn up

 so convincing users to do that would be difficult. What I would suggest is
 a "stable" svn tag - or you could call it "release" or whatever, but
 basically after implementing that, we can contact the authors of guides on
 using SVN to update Wordpress and encourage them to change to using the
 stable tag.
