Originally live was a "branch" of beta, i.e. it was an "svn copy". But I
guess I use a different definition than svn uses. I mean do a diff
between them and copy over the changes you think are appropriate.
Personally I use winmerge to do this. As I don't trust the "automated"
merge features of any VC system.
