RE: Recommendations for a production svn server

I can't comment on a windows server as we have one on linux.
But I can say that people here are very comfortable with SVN. Previous
projects used SourceSafe and some have had difficulty changing from 'file
commit' to 'tree commit'. Also some don't understand the development model
(no exclusive checkout!), but I guess you won't have that problem because
you're already using CVS.

On Windows NT (our desktops) many use rapidSVN, a couple use TortoiseSVN
(that's because of windows NT that lacks the required desktop shell
extensions and most people are too lazy to install'm).
On Linux some use the command line client. But, due to Samba, the linux
development environment is also available as a windows share and many people
simply use the windows clients to check out to linux. The fact that the
working copies are compatible between linux and windows is a very big
feature that has not been mentioned yet and I hope it stays!

The only real "problems" we've had, have been due to people trying too new
rapidSVN clients (which they downloaded themselves and were not 'announced'
as part of a server upgrade) ((-:

Good luck,
Jan Evert
