Many thanks for the input. This cannot be done from one *server* to another though, right? We're trying to overcome network latency, so anything that sits on the existing server is effectively useless to us. The ideal scenario (given that everyone uses SVN at the moment) is for us to continue working in a SVN branch in our environment, then we can merge the trunk (on a remote server) with the branch (on our server) and vice versa when necessary. The only way I've found to do this is a process of SVN exports in either direction, with manual merges. This is (as if it needs saying) unworkable.
