Re: Blue Sky: Scripting Language / SQL database ?

Btw, not sure how svn currently handles it, but when we were looking at
virtual directories we decided only to store text files *in* the database,
and leave everything else on the server. The DB effectively *knows* where
everything is (holding all the live props), but the app layer puts the dead
props resource requests together. Or perhaps you were thinking of just
using an sql db for the repository library .... I can wait for the doc of
course :-)
