Actually you can do it without even downloading anything:

	svn log -v http://svn.squeakland.org/installers

I guess you tried updating from within the Etoys-To-Go.app directory,  
which was removed, so that's why svn told you it could not update.

It's not even released, don't declare it dead already ;) I hope it  
will become the if-all-else-fails version of Etoys that Simply Works.

Yes, somehow I replaced it with an older version. But the one checked  
in now should be okay, yes?

Doing it manually is error-prone. The makeEtoysToGo script exports  
Etoys.app as Etoys-To-Go.app and then exports the Etoys-To-Go files on  
top of it. Very simple.

But it is unfortunate that we have three copies of the etoys script  
(the third is npetoysrun which is a bit special).
