Minimal required files to download to source control are.xjrf, .xqrf, source file (.c, .h. etc.), linker files, etc.  Generated files (.elf, .o / .out) should not be included.

SVN controls are now available through File / Source Control menu.




Files in the Project Workspace tree are marked with blue ticks if they are unchanged and with red ticks if they contain changes. For SVN manipulation of specific files select the files from the tree and open the context menu. Depending on whether the file was changed or not the context menu will offer appropriate SVN commands:
