RE: Re: Using subversion for webdevelopment

G'day Steven,

Would it be possible / practical to have each developer create a file
share of some sort to the development server?

If so, then the following option might work:
1. create a virtual host for each developer (as Patrick suggested)
2. expose each developer's virtual host directory on the server as a
   remotely mountable file share (ie. via NFS, Samba, Windows file
   sharing, what-have-you)
3. have each developer mount their own personal virtual host file
   share on their local workstation
4. use that file share as the working area for the Subversion
   repository (ie. checkout to the mounted virtual host file share)

I think this gives you exactly what you want - workstation accessible
working area (so people can checkout / edit / checking locally), that
is actually located on the server (so that people can make use of the
shared development web server).

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

There is a big assumption in all this: that working areas can be
created on locally mounted remote file shares. I know this isn't
allowed for the repository itself (if backed by BDB - FS will relax
this constraint I think), but I have no idea if it's allowed for a
working area.

Perhaps someone who knows more than I could confirm that this is
kosher?

Cheers,
Peter
