RE: Future of svnserve

Hi Garrett,
Hi Ben,

I also didn't mean to treat svnserve as second-class citizen. I hope to find
out whether the community (including users) favours one kind of server. I
have a quite clear picture of where I would personally use svnserve, but I
can't estimate the potential of the combination WebDAV/DeltaV/SVN. From what
I read in your book, it sounds promising, because version control could
spread to users, which normally would not make use of such technologies ...

Do you expect both servers to be equally well accepted (at least for the
medium-term)? No mod_dav_svn/apache hype, administrators refusing to open
the svnserve-port, etc.?

As I wrote, we are evaluating pros and cons of developing a pure java client
library -- and the number of users is the ultimate argument. From this point
of view, which protocol would you suggest to start with?

Best regards,
 Marc.
