RE: Re: SVN Server or file protocal on network share?

Hello all

 

Are there any hidden drawbacks in using a network share as the
repository, for example increased network traffic or potential for
corruption by multiple commits?

 

I am looking into just this problem at the moment (my network admin is
wary of running an open source server on his network!)

 

Regards Mike Newsome

Advantages:

1. Full control of reading and writing access to all pathes in the
repository
2. Repository can not be deleted accidentally.
3. Not every user can administrate the repository, only those
having file access.
4. The repository can be disconnected from the users shutting down
the server, e.g. for repository maintenance.

I am trying to find out what the advantages of useing a server for SVN
repository control are, as opposed to using Tortoise SVN clients on a
repositiory on a network file share. Our application would be multiple
user.
 
Is there any reason to prefer one over the other?
 
Thanks!
