Subversion Tools

Hi,

Some of us at work are try to get our company to leave VSS and move to
subversion. I've been working with TortoiseSVN and Apache with great
success. To make our case for the move stronger, I've been searching for a
few other tools for SVN but would like to get some information from those
who have first hand experience. So I'm turning to the list to see what you
suggest.

I'd have an easier time of making the case for the switch if I could find:

1) A windows program for configuring users and access rights. We have a
large database of programs and projects and some of them have restricted
rights. I know that I can make these changes manually but my boss will make
the point that he can do it easily from within VSS.

2) A windows program to let SVN users manage their own password or, even
better, a way to use the user's domain login for SVN login. I'm currently
trying to get mod_auth_ldap working with Apache but that's an email for
another list.

3) A windows program to copy the VSS database to SVN and preserver the
history. I've found a couple of tools that claim to do this but haven't
tried them yet. Have any of you used something similar? How well did it
work? What problems did you run into? Do you have any advice?

Finally, if anyone has used any other Windows tools with SVN that they like,
I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks for all your help.

Ciao,

F
