Success stories

I know there is a repository mine-is-bigger-than-yours list, but
no-one seems to be collecting any success stories yet. I thought
I'd drop this small one to get the ball rolling (perhaps someone
would like to collect them and stick them on the website somewhere).

  A small group (3-5) worked on the early revisions of a project for
  a customer. They used Subversion for version control and all
  worked merrily away.
  Development then moved out to the customer premisis to finish
  development and deploy to the customers environment.

The Success Bit
  Everyone was expecting the last bits of work in-house to be the
  final development. However, it turned out that futher changes
  were going to be needed requiring more builds and development
  time. Staff were already onsite, and without Internet access
  couldn't access the in-house repository. The customer had no
  concept of version control (they're not in the software development
  business) and had no system of their own.

  Subversion to the rescue! We installed Apache with the Subversion
  DAV modules on a Windows 2000 server on the customer site and
  created a blank repository database. This literally took 5 minutes to
  get up and running from scratch.
  Using "svnadmin dump" in combination with "svndumpfilter"
  from the in-house Linux server, we sent a copy out to the customer
  site, with full history. Half an hour later, a complete working
  Subversion environmemt with all the project history was available in
  an otherwise isolated development environment. Work continued under
  the safe umbrella of a version control system.

  Thanks to the Subversion team for making it so easy!
