RE: Subversion GUI client?

JC,

You have 2 choices; both are clearly within the pervue of Subversion.

1. SVN for Dreamweaver (Commercial product)
    http://www.grafxsoftware.com/product.php/SVN_for_Dreamweaver_10/135/
    I have tested it, and it is okay. It has certain limitations which you will not enjoy.

2. WebDAV (I use this, over Apache2.)
    http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s04.html
    http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch08s04.html
    http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/apc.html
    --> I use this in our shop. It allows a single WC to be shared among an ACL as managed by the WebDAV modules within Apache. SVN has an interface module which will be improved in 1.2 (in the works). The classic WebDAV module works great, and I even built a pre-scheduled cron-job to automatically commit WC changes to the repository [only a workaround until SVN 1.2 is released].

Simply, JC, these are the two options which would work. We use DreamweaverMX and Apache, and this is how we have our dev environment configured. It maintains the current (original) developer workflow, but adds Subversion behind-the-scenes. Arguably SVN was not originally designed for that deployment type, but it accomodates it cleary and very very well.

Please keep in mind: if Dreamweaver is *improperly* configured, then that will limit your results. The WebDAV approach works on both Win + Mac (and other platforms, too).

Hey, thanks to everybody who responded.

I really didn't expect to encounter this kind of response. On the one hand,
it was refreshing that people care enough to reply to a total stranger (not
just once, but repeatedly.) On the other hand, there seems to me to be some
entrenched thinking going on . . . .

Nevertheless, you guys are great.

Since no one seems to know of a way to do what I am trying to accomplish, I
try to will "work within the system."

Good night, and God bless.
