Now I have a question that I really need help with:

What is the best process for merging this patch into our development trees using svn?

Here is the current state:

1) I have a copy of the vanilla 5.0.0 tree checked out in my local repository;

2) My working copy contains all my changes; none of them are checked in;

3) By typing "svn diff >DG_patch.txt" I generate a patch file that converts vanilla 5.0.0 to my fork. 

4) To install a production installation of my fork, I first install vanilla 5.0.0, then apply my patchfile.

What I need to do is this:

1) Generate a merged working copy that is 5.0.1 + my patches

2) End up with a local repository that contains vanilla 5.0.1

3) Generate a patch file that converts a "5.0.0 + my patches" installation to a "5.0.1 + my patches" installation.

What's the best way to do this? I know there are merge commands in svn, but I have no idea how to use them.
