Thanks for great product!
I like both Subversion, and TSVN.

I'm one of about 20 developers who work on various projects ranging
from GUI clients to integration with telephones (PBX).
Our projects are mainly varius text source files (Delphi, HTML, XML,
Java, Python etc) and number of source files per project is from 20 to

We have used CVS but there were many problems with this.
Escpecially if you work on Windows and try to compile on Linux,
and Delphi IDE sometimes changes case in your library filename :(
In svn there is less problems because of pre-commit hook.
It is also easier to use repository. Simple CGI program can show
links to repositories. In CSV it is much harder. We use https protocol.
I have also created Trac environments (see http://trac.edgewall.org/)
for bigger projects. So much on svn .

I like TSVN because it integrates with Windows shell. We use TotalCommander
and it cooperates very well with TSVN. With CVS we used WinCvs, but it was
much harder to use. TortoiseCVS was better, but problems with CVS
lead us to Subversion+TSVN.

Things I like in TSVN:
+integration works very well with TotalCommander
+nice commit dialog where I can sort by extension (not possible in WinCVS)
+integrated spellchecker (even for my language: Polish)
+very good and really fast support on TSVNdev list

Things that could be improved:
-speed -- CVS is much faster :(
-it would be nice to sort by date on commit dialog
-sometime I need filter on commit dialog (both positive and negative),
 for example I don't want see changed .dof (Delphi options) files,
 because I only set some debug flags and they will not be commited
