Can anyone confirm or dispute this claim? The only difference I see is that svn checkout requires an explicit URL?
I am in a situation where I would like TestStand to pull the latest files from a subversion repository before each test begins. If calling svn checkout will not cause any problems then it greatly reduces the code I have to write. I can do one simple "checkout" which will either checkout or update depending on the state of the build tree (I don't have to try to figure out if a working copy already exists).
