@BFTrick Hey man, I'm using your super useful deploy script and I have a problem that sometimes when I deploy the plugin has a "trunk/" folder there when it shouldn't. Is there anything I could be doing wrong?

I can report the same issue as @marcobarbosa. The problem seems to occur if the svn directory is left intact between deploys. If you delete the svn directory it works OK.

For a more robust solution:

NEWVERSION2=`grep "^Version" $GITPATH/$MAINFILE | awk -F' ' '{print $2}'`

should be:

NEWVERSION1=`grep "^Stable tag" $GITPATH/readme.txt | awk -F':' '{print $2}' | tr -d ' '`

and then also, this should be used:

NEWVERSION2=`grep "Version:" $GITPATH/$MAINFILE | awk -F':' '{print $2}' | tr -d ' '`
