I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro and it came loaded with Mac OS X 10.9 (commonly referred to as Mavericks). Installing SCPlugin for svn is always one of the first things I do with my new development machines, but I ran into trouble getting the SCToolbarButton to “stick” up in my Finder window. After fruitlessly searching the out-of-date SCPlugin documentation for hours, I finally discovered that in Mavericks you now have to hold the Option + Command keys before dragging the SCToolbarButton icon up into the corner of the Finder window. Otherwise, the Finder window will not accept anything dragged onto its menu section. I hope this saves you all some headaches!
