Re: svnsync is unidirection sync to get a read only mirror site. Will svnsync develop to bidirection?

Quick summary:

- We have patented technology that provides replication for CVS,
Subversion and JIRA.
- NO changes and I mean NO changes to SVN. No hook scripts here there
or anywhere. The SVN community does a great job, so no need for us to
change.
- Quick pitch - we have some huge deployments out there that use
Subversion MultiSite running over thousands of users and many sites
with no admin overhead.
- You don't need to go with a disconnected architecture like GIT to
achieve enterprise class distribution. SVN is a fantastic product and
that is why it is the most popular SCM.
