well, the reason I picked up asvn has been that I've been looking for a
solution to store file permissions inside a Subversion repository.
I've found asvn quiet quickly via google. Because of the fact that it
resides at the subversion project repository (even only in the contrib
path) I was hoping that the svn properties defined here may also be used
at other/future solutions.
I needed this for a specific project. I do not expect to use it a lot in
the future.
However, if you really want to get rid of it, I can put it into our
trac-system at https://trac.dass-it.de/pub/
There resides already a similar project called "dasscm" (wrapper around
svn to version system configuration files).
I found asvn via google by looking for "subversion store file
permissions" in some old mailing. During the past years some people had
similar requirements.
To ensure others persons will still be able to find asvn:
how would you link from the current asvn location to the new one?
Replace the asvn script with a text like "asvn has moved. It now resides
at https://trac.dass-it.de/pub/"?
