I looked at using it, but we decided against it because we wanted
sources for our integration tools. It looks really nice though. Why not
download it from their website and try it out for yourself?

The main problem any SCC provider has with Subversion is that the SCC
spec was designed around SourceSafe. Among other issues, this means that
everything is geared to a strict-locking style of development, which is
not really the Subversion Way.

If you are just interested in VisualStudio integration, another thing
you might be interested in trying is Ankhsvn. (
http://ankhsvn.tigris.org/ ). Sadly, we couldn't use that either, as its
.NET, and we are still using VS6.

I ended up having to write our own Subversion SCC provider, which I'm
still working on in the rare moments I have time to spare. Sadly, I
can't share it, as Micro$oft made us sign an NDA before they'd let me
look at their (inadequate) SCC docs. Its a lot of work, so I'd say
PushOK's software is definitely worth the money if it works OK for you.
