[darcs-users] Getting started with tailor

Sorry for being the newbie here ..

Starting from scratch:

jean at klippie ~/work/tailor-repos $ tailor.py --debug --bootstrap \
   --source-kind=svn --repository=svn://..../trunk \
   ./learnlinux-darcs-trunk

Now I want to see if anything has changed remotely:

jean at klippie ~/work/tailor-repos $ tailor.py --debug --verbose 
learnlinux-darcs-trunk/

Updating 'trunk' from revision '154'
TZ=UTC svn log --verbose --xml --revision 155:HEAD . 2>&1 ... [Error 256]

Is that the right way to check for remote changes? What's that Error 256?

Does anyone have any more pointers or howtos? I've found
"Rough HOWTO for two way sync'ing between SVN and darcs"
   http://www.darcs.net/pipermail/darcs-users/2005-January/005070.html
and
   http://www.scannedinavian.org/DarcsWiki/Tailor
but I still don't feel comfortable that I know enough.
