   Subversion 1.2 will have the ability to "lock" files, which will
   give them this functionality. Right now, Subversion does not
   have this ability (1.2 will probably arrive in just a few weeks).

   The debate over locking vs. non-locking revision control is
   age-old (relatively speaking), it works for some, it doesn't
   work for others. As of 1.2, Subversion will support both modes.

   Sure. "svn log URL:///repository" will show you a log of all changes,
   you can just chop it at the 1 year mark. Subversion doesn't have
   any way of expressing "1 year prior" in the command line syntax,
   you'll have to work that out on your own.
