The commit process is initiated via the SVN > Commit menu
option. This command commits the changes in your local working copy to
commit a resource to SVN repository

uppermost level) in the Projects
choose SVN > Commit...
from the popup menu, or
Select any element of the model and choose File > SVN > Commit...
from the main menu.
- If there were no changes made since the last commit operation,
you will see the dialog with the corresponding message shown:
- Otherwise, you will see the Commit
- Enter a comment to associate with the commit or choose a
entered comment from the list.
- In the Changes field
you should specify which particular changes you want to commit to
SVN repository. The scope of the commit operation is relative to the

resources. All modified, added and deleted resources will be selected
You select/deselect a resource by ticking on/off checkboxes to the left
of its tree item. To select all resources, right-click (Mac OS:
Ctrl+click) in the empty
area of the Changes field and
All from the popup menu. Conversely, to deselect all resources,
click Deselect All.
In the Changes
tree, resources may have specific icon modifiers that may help you:

The resource was modified locally.
Conflicting resources. The local and incoming verisions of the
resource are conflicting.
The resource was deleted locally.
- When finished, click OK
to commit the selected changes to the SVN repository.
If the commit was successful, you should
see that the information in
the model tag (the revision number and the timestamp) was updated:
Your working copy must
be up-to-date with respect to the
you are committing. This is ensured by using SVN > Update, just
prior to committing, resolving conflicts and re-testing as needed, as
described in the typical work cycle.
