Updating repository > live copy

There is one thing that isn't clear in the documentation and seems to be something we're "supposed to know" regarding updating from the trunk (and I obviously don't "know" it).

Okay, so, you run 'svn up' to update the repository. That's all fine and good. But what do you run after that to transfer the updated repository to the working copy? THAT has never been laid out anywhere, and the LJ documentation still refers to cvsreport, which I understand is obsolete and no longer used.

Do you have to re-run these two commands:

vcv/bin/vcv --conf=multicvs.conf --checkout
vcv/bin/vcv --conf=multicvs.conf --init

or is there an svn-specific command you run?

Also, it would seem you have to know the version number(s) in order to roll back a revision, am I right, or is there an easier way to do it via svn?

Thanks for any help.
