As you mentioned before SVK is the tool for the Job.
The other thing is you have to create a branch for every team member on
Then every team member will mirror the particular branch for each onto
his local notebook (svk mirror
after this each member has to make a local branch where each one can
work on (svk cp //project/member1/branch //project/member1/local).
Now each member can checkout the source on its notebook (at this point
you can go abroad) and work on it and checkin changes localy just using
After you will be back to your companies network every member can do
and synchronizing the local changes into the repos using:
svk sm -I -l //project/member1/local //project/member1/branch
This will check in the changes you've made localy exaclty into your
repository (on the branches you've created before) incl. your log messages.
Then you have all changes on the branches for every member on companies
Then just checkout a trunk copy and merge every branch after an other in
your trunk copy.
