Not exactly answering your question, but pointing towards your concerns
about checkouting and commiting over a WAN.
Our company has been using subversion for one year now, and we do most of
our work in an outsourcing fashion. We use the customer's internet link,
which is usually a 256k ADSL link or worse, to do our SVN work against our
SVN apache-based repository, and no one has ever complained about it being

Subject: Multiple SVNServes to the same FSFS repository?
I am considering deploying Subversion for some of our projects.
Right now we have multiple offices with real-time WAN file mirroring.
Basically we have a RAID array in each site that is synced and the users
always use a local share. The software we use maintains file contents,
locks, etc. over the WAN in real time. Could I run a copy of svnserve in
each location, pointing at the same FSFS database, or is that going to cause
conflicts? I am trying to avoid WAN checkouts and commits going over the
WAN, then the revision going back over the WAN again.
