The first thing to get accustomed to is Subversion itself, because TSVN only
provides a graphical client interface on top of that. In particular the setup
and configuration of the server is not a TSVN issue. Keep in mind that SVN
versions file trees, and that the trunk/branches/tags structure you will find
in lots of documentation is not a must for you but just a common convention.

Seems like you are doing web development, there are existing approaches to
deploying websites using hook scripts and rsync etc, it all depends on what
exactly you need.

This is a server setup issue, please read the docs about the two server
variants that are provided, as this will also affect the available
authentication schemes.

TSVN already provides a few hooks to pull e.g. updates from a company-specific
location, so they can get approved. Of course, being FOSS, you can also
compile it from scratch and customize it to your delight.

This is not trivial at all, take time, ask questions. I guess most of your
questions belong to the SVN mailinglist though, not here.

BTW: You forgot integration in you backup/restore procedures, SVN is not a
replacement for backups! Also, you will need to make plans how to train users,
maybe define procedures and conventions for use in your company.

Good luck!
