Re: New subversion hosting service

I'm not criticizing your efforts, but am wondering why the restriction to
free. I know that I actually wouldn't use a free SVN service, but would
pay for one (if I didn't have my own servers). Why? Because the whole
point of SVN is to maintain a history for the files and paid services are
just more likely to still be around next year. Not that the free services
aren't valuable. They are. If you're doing an open source project, sites
like Sourceforge are a godsend. However, if the data you want to keep in
an SVN repository is worth a year's salary or more, you probably are
looking for a paid service.

There are things I seek out for free and those I will always pay for and
the security of my data is one of them that I will and do pay for.
