Re: Commercial Users of Subversion: LET ME KNOW

I also have had a very positive experience moving from CVS to Subversion
in a commercial setting. We are a small-ish silicon valley startup that
used to have everything in CVS. Shortly after I joined as s/w manager I
switched the s/w team to SVN (0.37) with excellent results. We have had
zero loss of data, zero down time, with effective branching, easy
repository restructuring and constant time tags as our big positives.
The entire company will be moving in the near-ish future based on our
pilot. And of course the support from this list is fantastic.

As for my wishlist, it is short - completely seamless and foolproof
tracking of merge history at the same level as the commercial tools. I
don't want to remember revision numbers, I just want to branch and merge
with the tool remembering common base versions etc. This is really the
only thing I miss about ClearCase.
