I've been following Subversion, but I haven't used it. The description
you give above sounds a lot like what I've done with CVS; but I have
never really been "happy" with the source control. Would you be willing
to describe some details of how you set things up and used them? Pros
and cons would be nice too...

I feel I understand the mechanics of committing, merging, tagging, etc.,
but the policies surrounding those tend to be very ad-hoc or not thought
through. In your use of Subversion, did you come to any conclusions on
what policies worked and what didn't?

Hrmmm... Maybe I should just suggest that you write a white paper about
your experience and be done with it. ;)

Ah well, back to work,
