Subversion: fish or cut bait?

From: Peter Burkholder <peterb_at_ucar.edu>

Having been seduced by the promise of Subversion, I've been attempting to
test Subversion to see if I might be able to use it a repository for web
authors, from which I can check our web site for test and production.

My requirements were to a) add version control so we can roll back to
previous version of our site and b) provide an easy interface between
Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and the repository, and c) have a cleaner workflow
process than when I arrived here.

My hope was that Dreamweaver's WebDAV support might work. I still don't
know. I have svn-server running and Apache httpd 2.0.45 with mod_dav_svn, but I
now understand that I need mod_dav_lock from httpd 2.1 tree to even attempt
commiting to the repository from Dreamweaver's WebDAV client. So, what do I
do now?

    a) build apache 2.1 and hope that it's stable enough to be a Subversion
    b) hope someone write a Dreamweaver extension so it plays better with
    Subversion See thread starting from
    c) see if my web authors could stomach learning to use a subversion
    client like rapidSVN.
    d) abandon Subversion for Catacomb or CVS or Zope.

Any suggestions? Am I trudging down a dead end here with Subversion in its
current state or does Nirvana lie just over the next ridge?
