accessing svnserve...

karl/others...

thanks for all the responses as i jump into subversion!!

the docs/suggestions have been helpful, but i have a few more questions.

i have successfully (i hope) setup a svnserve process, and created an
initial repository on a linux platform.

i did the following commands.

svnserve -d
svnadmin create /svnroot/svn
svnimport /tmp file:///svnroot/svn -m 'blah'

i was also able to perform a checkout of the test information to another
test working dir.

i was able to use the following command:
svn list svn://192.168.1.52/svnroot/svn

which gave me the following structure:
[test_at_lserver2 zz]$ svn list svn://192.168.1.52/svnroot/svn
branches/
tags/
trunk/

which is the structure that i created.

my questions are:

1) when i access the server from another linux server, what do i need (in
terms of rpms) to have the 'svn' app on the client server?

2) what do i need to do (command) to be able to 'see/access' the underlying
projects. within the test repository, i imported/created a 'app' proj. how
can i see that the 'app' project is in the repository?

3) assuming i get everything working using svnserve, what kind of changes
would i need to do to the repository to get it working using apache? i'm
trying to work my way up the learning curve!!!

4) does subversion allow for any way/mechanism to attach a 'status/property'
to a given file/version of a file? (also, does subversion automatically
create a new version of the file with every checkout/checkin process??)

my basic needs are to allow a number of users to access files, and make
changes to the files over time. once a file gets to a certain state, i'd
like to be able to allow a user to tag the file/version as being 'good'...
with the ability to be able to somehow extract/download all files that are
tagged 'good' on a certain date.

thanks for any help/assistance/pointers, etc...

This section

   http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/book.html#svn-ch-1-sect-7

does say you have to check out a working copy after importing, but in
general the docs could be clearer about this. I talked to Ben
Collins-Sussman, one of the book authors, and he's planning to improve
it.
