I know TortoiseSVN but I haven't seen anything similar for Linux.  
Frankly - I use command line with couple of aliases (svi, svs, svu,  
etc.) to do most SVN related work. I use GUI client only to  
(re)organise directories. I shortly used something remotely similar to  
TortoiseSVN under OS X, though.

Great! I was hoping for something easily transferrable. I have  
something similar used to create off-site backups of the SVN  
repository. Those get created and uploaded only if changes are  
introduced since the time of the last backup but I could easily hook  
it up to do something else.

Looking ahead! :-)
