Heather, yours is a question better aimed at our user community
(users_at_subversion.apache.org). We use this list to talk solely about the
*development* of the Subversion software, not its use. Please pose your
question again on that list.

While I have your attention, though, I will say that Subversion's very
purpose is to track changes to files over time while preserving the
integrity of the files themselves. Of course, while I can make that claim
in all honesty using the same words you did, it's still possible that you
and I have different interpretations of those words. I'm confident that as
you discuss your needs on the users@ list, though, the finer points of what
you need and what Subversion offers will be ironed out.
