Examine Your Changes

Once you’ve finished making changes, you need to commit them to the repository, but before you do so, it’s usually a good idea to take a look at exactly what you’ve changed. By examining your changes before you commit, you can make a more accurate log message. You may also discover that you’ve inadvertently changed a file, and this gives you a chance to revert those changes before committing. Additionally, this is a good opportunity to review and scrutinize changes before publishing them. You can see an overview of the changes you’ve made by using svn status, and you can dig into the details of those changes by using svn diff.
