SVN improvements

Dear SVN Guys,

Perhaps you would be interested to see this. I'm forwarding you a part of my conversation about changing the source control system in the (big) organization I'm working for (http://www.tase.co.il). This is an explanation why a suggestion to drop Microsoft VSS in favour of Subversion was turned down after a research.

Hopefully you will find it useful to improve certain things to match existing industry's requirements, because personally I would prefer to use Subversion to anything else :)

Best Regards,
Pavel

We thought that trying to teach people about copy-edit-merge while
taking away the Visual Studio integration would not fly. While
TortoiseSVN (the Windows Exploerer plug-in) is a fine product, AnkhSVN
(the VS.NET plug-in) was not ready for general use at the time we tried
it (version 0.5.5). Version 0.6 is still not out, and I don't know how
much it will fix.

I think when we talked yesterday, I said what I think: As a pure
source-control program, Subversion is better than SourceSafe, period. An
order of magnitude better. If we were starting from scratch, I would
prefer the not-integrated TortoiseSVN to the integrated SourceSafe.
However, we are not starting from scratch. If we change something, it
needs to be perceived as an improvement. The way things stand now, we
would just be replacing one set of problems for another; the SVN set of
problems would affect more people more of the time, and they would be
less sophisticated users than the ones who run into SourceSafe limitations.

             Thanks. You know, though, that I don't need to be convinced.
