Status: Mirroring and Web-Dav proxy

Thanks to all who helped out a couple of weeks ago when the Web-Dav
proxy code was added into the Subversion code base.

I'm now using this to mirror 19 of our company's Subversion repositories
in a master/slave arrangement.

We upgraded from Win2K running Subversion 1.2.1 to a master Win2003 R2 server
running Subversion 1.4.2 and the slave is RedHat Enterprise Linux 4.4 with
updated packages to use the Apache 2.2.3 web server to do the proxy.
This is using Subversion trunk 1.5.0-22761 which passed all the automated

Our main 9.2 GB repository on Windows replicated into a 7 GB repository on
Linux (I did not do a dump/load on the master Windows server to see how
much it would reduce).

This allows us to act like we are committing to the local slave/mirror
repository which actually gets re-directed to the remote master
repository, yet still check out, update, diff, log via the local slave

As far as I can tell it is all working great.

This code was put in literally in the nick of time. We were mandated 3
weeks ago to move all of our repositories to the company headquarters.


Merry Christmas!
