Re: Subversion: fish or cut bait?

Still fishing...

Dreamweaver does not work with the Autoversioning directive (because it's trying
to issue LOCKs, I guess) unless you also have mod_dav_lock.

After all the hassle I went though to get Subversion and Apache 2 built (on
a machine that's a little out of date), I decided that it with all the
prerequisites and libraries in place it would be relatively easy to build
Apache 2.1 and rebuild Subversion. I was right.

With the following httpd.conf directives, Dreamweaver is able to get files
from the repository, edit them, and commit revisions.

<Location /svn>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath /export/devel/svn/repos
  SVNAutoversioning on
  DavGenericLockDB /export/devel/svn/locks

However, Dreamweaver cannot create new files in the repository (which, on
reflection, isn't too surprising). - - [23/Apr/2003:13:57:50 -0600] "PROPFIND /svn/DPChelp/trunk/peter.html HTTP/1.1" 404 333 "-" "Dreamweaver-WebDAV-SCM1.02" - - [23/Apr/2003:13:57:50 -0600] "PROPFIND /svn/DPChelp/_mm/ HTTP/1.1" 404 321 "-" "Dreamweaver-WebDAV-SCM1.02" - - [23/Apr/2003:13:57:50 -0600] "PROPFIND /svn/DPChelp/trunk/peter.html HTTP/1.1" 404 333 "-" "Dreamweaver-WebDAV-SCM1.02" - - [23/Apr/2003:13:57:50 -0600] "LOCK /svn/DPChelp/trunk/peter.html HTTP/1.1" 200 447 "-" "Dreamweaver-WebDAV-SCM1.02" - - [23/Apr/2003:13:57:50 -0600] "PROPFIND /svn/DPChelp/trunk/peter.html HTTP/1.1" 404 333 "-" "Dreamweaver-WebDAV-SCM1.02"

That's pretty much of a deal breaker.

I don't know if I can really consider RapidSVN. When I try to use the
binary installation, as soon as I try to access the repository in any way I
get a "rapidsvn.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You
will need to restart the program. An error log is being generated" There's
no error log that I can find, but I don't know where to look.

Oh well, it was fun for a little while.
