     96GSAS-II is updated often (sometimes daily). At any point, the bootstrap.bat file (see step 3, above) can be run again. When this is done, only the files that have been changed will be downloaded, so the transfer will take much less time. If you have made changes in any files, the subversion program (svn) will attempt to merge your changes with the updates on the server. This will usually succeed, but if there are conflicts, you will need to resolve them yourself before GSAS-II will run properly.
