[RFC] [PATCH] Noting existence of FSVS

From: Ph. Marek <philipp.marek_at_bmlv.gv.at>
Date: Thu, 3 Apr 2008 11:19:14 +0200

Hello everybody,

on the subversion users mailing list (and others) I often read about wishes to
have meta-data versioning capabilities in subversion.

Now these questions are often centered around deploying software, which is
exactly what FSVS is about.

So I'd like to note FSVS somewhere on the subversion site, so that people
looking for this functionality see it and don't have to ask. (Yes, I know,
they could google - but if they use the wrong keywords, they probably won't
find anything.)

I've done two patches (see below); noting on links.html is probably no
problem; the controversial point is whether the index page is not a bit too
prominent - but these questions comes up often, so this might not be so wrong
after all.



   New link for FSVS added to links.html.
