Yeah, if you want the file to appear in the patch, then you've got to 
add it.
Then once you do that you can't update, ugh! I guess you could not do
the svn add and just attach the files to the JIRA along with the patch
and describe where they should go, but this takes more effort on the
part of the committer to put them in the right place and is open to
mistakes when writing down the path locations of the files (which can
be pretty long in Harmony!).

If you are following the add, create patch, revert, delete, update, diff 
cycle, then
at least you can transfer new changes to the svn versioned file during
the diff stage, so you should be able to continue working on the newly added
file (even if it is a hassle every time you have to update).
I would be great if svn would recognise that the added file in the repo was
the same as the one added on your disk and attempt to merge them.

There must be someone out there who knows a better way to do this?

Oliver
