I've got a shell script that performs some tasks using files from a Subversion repository. I would like the Subversion repository to keep up-to-date, but right now the script runs
svn up every time which is annoying if I need to run the script several times in a row.
svn up changes the last modified timestamp of the
.svn directory (even if there were no new commits), I figured that I could use that to make sure it only runs
svn up once per day or so.
I tried finding a simple way of just checking whether the
.svn directory is older than a day, but there were many seemingly overkill ways of doing it so I thought I'd ask here in case there's actually a very simple way to do it.
