Does that include Apache? I could understand svnserve.

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.

Is there any reason to prefer one over the other?
 
Thanks!
