Subversion presentation at Silicon Valley Linux Users Group

Hey all, just a quick note about the SVLUG presentation Greg Stein and
I gave Wednesday night: the audience was very enthusiastic about
Subversion and seemed very interested -- I hope/suspect we'll get a
good batch of beta testers as a result of this. :-) They asked a lot
of questions, some quite technical, most of which we had positive
answers to.

The #1 message I'd say we got out of it is that quite a few people
want distributed repository functionality. Not 1.0, obviously, but
it's something people are hungry for.

Ben gave a demo of the command-line client, which was very satisfying
from the "hey it's not total vapor" standpoint. He even ventured into
some of the beyond-CVS features -- he committed some file changes, a
propset, a file add, and a file delete, and then updated another
working copy to show all those changes being received as part of the
regular update process.

Wayne Earl wrote an excellent report for Newsforge on the
presentation, you can see it here:
