I wrote about this before, but my workflow improved since then and I want to share with you how I maintain my WordPress.org plugins.

I host them on GitHub and I maintain them using Cloud9. Cloud9 combines an online code editor with a full Ubuntu workspace in the cloud. All the changes are synchronised via Git and pushed to WordPress.org repository using SVN:

svn add *

svn delete myfile

svn ci -m "My verbose commit message"

Changes can also be pushed back to GitHub using Git:

git add --all

git commit . -m "My verbose commit message"

git push
