Maybe this document can help you why you may choose SVN rather than CVS or

This document gives you a comparison of different SCM tools including CVS,

Subject: Triple login required by svn+ssh and dynamic IP address for server




I'm testing SVN and plan to transition to SVN from CVS. Before getting to my
main question, can anyone tell me (honestly) why should I move to SVN while
CVS is still commonly use out there in the open source community? My company
just started to use CVS not long ago and now we find SVN works much better
especially the binary files part. Moving to SVN means we have to use SVN for
our internal development and still retain CVS for development in the open
source like sourceforge and many others.


Now, my main question:


I installed SVN-1.2.0 on my SuSE Linux 9.1 Pro box. I invoke svnserve via
xinetd. I am able to do


svn co svn+ssh://user@hostname/svn/pro/aaa


I was then asked to enter password for user thrice. I have read the archive
about required to enter password twice.


Why is it so? Is this a bug, or extra security? :-) Is there anyway to
change this?


Second question: I'm using dynamic IP address for the server. SVN will store
the url in .svn folder and when IP address of the server change, svn will
not work because of different server url. Is there a way to overcome this
problem? One way is to manually edit all the .svn/entries but this can
become tedious if there are many nested folders in the tree.
