Re: SVN Push and deployment

you can use SVN::Push to push content from one repository to another. I have
written SVN::Push, because we have one internal server which holds our
development repository and one external server which is used for software
deployment. While the internal repository contains the full history, the
external server only contains the releases, without the need to publish all
