RE: Re: Multiple SVNServes to the same FSFS repository?

        The software forces all open/delete/etc. requests to go those
its central server ("traffic cop" they call it) so theoretically it is
as real-time as a local file system.
        I guess the real question is does Subversion leave repository
files locked while it is running, which would prevent multiple svnserves
to the same repository. If it does not, does it gracefully handle
another instance creating a revision at the same time.

            Thanks,

It really depends on how real-time your mirrorring really is, but I
think it might cause problems. If people start committing from different

locations at exactly the same time, I think you might end up with two
revisions with the same number but different contents...

And that's not good, obviously.
