RE: Re: Visual Studio.Net and Subversion?

I just think that it is reasonable to say that waiting for Whidbey is not an alternative and anyone that did would have the new source safe implementation from MS to use anyway.

I think we can also say that because of this issue, windows .net shops are very unlikely to use SVN / tSVN unless:

* They are not using web projects or
* They have few enough people and current web projects that the change in dev methods are not a big deal
* They have enough IT pull that they can mandate the change

I sincerely appreciate the fine work here of both teams, but for me it is a daunting task to recompile either product. I don't even have python installed and cannot spend the time with such things.

I think to wait for some user to post a fix (I really appreciate that as well) is such an obvious security issue that I would never allow that inside our organization (maybe on my test box in the lab) unless this is something that was created by the SVN or tSVN team. How do I know what was put inside there?

The conversations seem to get heated on this, but needless to say you have a lot of windows .net developers who are in a quandary because the way VS.NET loads a webproject is thru IIS currently: http://localhost/myWebProject.

Either way, if there is no desire by either team to have VS.net users as part of their user base then this conversation is pointless anyway. That is the way it feels to be honest - like we are the losers because MS sucks and couldn't create a piece of software that works properly and we should wait a year for Whidbey to launch so we can then use SVN.

If there is not a supported fix planned by the teams, then we will unfortunately have to jump ship an NOT use these fine products which I am very disappointed about.

I hope that nobody gets bent out of shape from this email as it is not intended to be insulting in any way.
