I want to formally thank everyone that publically and privately responded
to my urgent questions below!
For those of you that are curious to know what occured:
Initially, it looked very much like the material that you supplied to me
was exactly the 'convincing' that our management required. I was happy
and carefree :)
Recently, I found out that a change of mind had occured, and it was deemed
'too risky and new', and also that it was an introduction of 'yet another'
technology into our infrastructure (we are already using PVCS and a bit of
CVS). So, it was decided that we should go with 'CVS' instead, and leave
the door open for Subversion possibilities down the road. Suddenly, I
wasn't so happy and carefree anymore, and I expressed my disappointment
and disagreement with the decision -- but that is the way it worked out!
Maybe we will talk again in the future! :)

Subject: Commercial Users of Subversion: LET ME KNOW
Hello, I am new to this list. I have been participating in a 'proof of
concept' project to implement Subversion into our company's computer
Everything is going fine, and everyone involved is very impressed with
Subversion, except that we have hit a 'snag' in our plans -- the
'conservative' nature of our company will probably refuse the move to
Subversion -- and pick 'CVS' instead -- since we don't want to be the
'first guys on the block' that use Subversion for mission-critical
non-open-source project development.
I have till this Friday to look for evidence that there are 'commercial'
users of Subversion that are using it for 'mission-critical' development
and are happy with it. The 'testimonials' page on the Subversion website
contains lots of good 'open source' users, but I need testimonials from
If you think you can help me, please let me know ASAP! I am desperate! :)
