Hello,

 

I have a few questions about what is the best way to set up a svn controlled
system.

 

We currently use CVS on SuSe 9.2 machines, and we have come across some of
its limitations so are now thinking of switching to subversion.

 

The way we use cvs is as follows, we all work on the main trunk and once our
code is ready we tag it. If any further changes are required we will create
a branch and use that, this is so all the other developers can continue
working on the main trunk. Once the branch is fully working we will tag
that and release it. We would then merge the branch back into the main
trunk.

 

Our main question is, are we going about the whole control versioning in a
wrong way? The reason we do it this way is as follows:

 

Many people suggest that each developer on the system should have their own
working directory, this is not possible for us because of the way our system
works; it has approximately 20 to 30 services binding to different ports and
different ips all on the same machine. We also have to share the machine
when we develop the system, this is because we follow eXtreme Programming.

 

We also have the following questions:

1. Is it possible to set permissions on files, so that when they are
checked out they automatically get the desired permissions on the file
system.

2. Is it possible to use SVN with PAM Authentication?

 

Any comments would be appreciated

 

Thanks
