\paragraph{Committing a new folder to the Subversion repository}
For those who work with Subversion (svn) and want to commit a newly setup folder to the repository, additional guidelines apply:
For those who work with Subversion (svn) and want to commit a newly setup folder to the repository some basics are
given in this paragraph. For further reading please check out the Subversion User Manual found at \cite{APACHE-SUBVERSION-HP}
where you will also find a "High Speed Turorial" in the appendix. \\
The four most important commands are \texttt{svn checkout}, \texttt{svn update}, \texttt{svn add}
and \texttt{svn commit}. The first one (\texttt{svn checkout}) you probably already know from the \Dumux installation.
It will create a copy of the trunk version from the svn server on your local system. Use \texttt{svn update} to get the
latest changes in the repository (commits from other users). In order to add a new folder to the repository the following
steps have to be taken:
\item \texttt{svn update}: The first step is to update your \Dumux. You should execute this command in your
dumux-stable or dumux-devel folder.
\item \texttt{svn add --depth=empty YOURFOLDER}: This command adds the folder without its content.
\item In your folder: use \texttt{svn add YOURFILES} to add your files. Generally, you should only add
your header files (.hh), your source files (.cc), your input file (.input) and if required your grid file (.dgf).
\item Use \texttt{svn commit} from the directory level containing your folder. This uploads all your changes to the
svn server. You will be asked to briefly explain the content of your commit in an editor.
The above shows you the necessary steps if you use the command line. There are also other tools providing a graphical
user interface for using svn like kdesvn or eclipse. The necessary steps for adding and committing stay the same.
In the following some additional guidelines are shown which are not necessary but are good practice.
Especially if you plan on committing to the stable part of \Dumux you must follow these steps.
\item use svn attributes to ignore files which are automatically created by a dunecontrol run
