Re: is webdav really usefull?

WebDAV is *very* useful ... esp. on a team of non-technical people managing
a large amount of content. They don't need full version control, but is a
must-have to be able to look at histories when needed. I am using WebDrive +
SVN WebDAV for some non-software projects and have nothing but good things
to say about it -- SVN functions as an awesome versioned file system. The
solution even works well over VPN and lower bandwidth connections. (Much
faster to browse a mounted WebDAV folder over a low-bandwidth connection
than a Windows fileshare!)
