Hello developers,
I'm looking for some experienced advice to improve my development
workflow with freeswitch.

I've got one Server where I've originally downloaded fs sources from the
svn under the path


then I've configured it for installation in /opt/software/freeswitch in
order to have everything under the same filesystem directory.

Now a colleague of mine and me, do change something in freeswitch
sources and configuration files.
For some reasons we don't edit the files directly on the Server, instead
we currently work on our desktop PC within Eclipse IDE.
Since we don't compile the software on our desktop PCs but we compile it
on the Server, we don't copy all the Freeswitch sources on our Eclipse
workspace but only the files we actually need to change.

For example if I need to change something in mod_sofia within
1) if it is the first time I edit this file: semi-manually download via
scp the file under a workspace filesystem on my PC which resemble fs
sources directory structure
2) commit this original unmodified version of the sofia_glue.c under a
local subversion repository of mine which has nothing to do with
3) edit the file (this is the fun part :-)
4) deploy the file on the Server via ant "build.xml"
5) "make mod_sofia-install" on the Server
6) commit/update sofia_glue.c on my local subversion repository in order
to share my patches with my colleague and keep track of changes and

As you may understand, my problem is that I want to stay in sync with
latest, official, freeswitch svn tree. 
I would like to keep both my changes and the official freeswitch
Any hint on how to deal with this "scenario"? :-)

Thanks a lot,
