RE: SVN / PERFORCE comparison

The propagation of changes to a repository to another may be an
interesting feature
for shared components between projects. Sounds interesting. I'll have a
demo from
a Perforce guy by Friday, I'll check this out.

Disconnected operations may be interesting too, since we have a lot of
developers
abroad. We have some guys already using P4. They have people abroad too,
and their
solution, since the bandwith is very limited, is a proxy server, so the
first guy updating make the changes faster for everyone else.

Definitely, Subversion seems more convenient for distributed operations.
I will
start to run some tests in order to compare speed between P4 and SVN.
I'll post them
here, if they are relevant.

If you have more for SVN, come on :)

Cagatay Catal [cagatay.catal@bte.mam.gov.tr]:

SVN/PERFORCE
* Does the system support moving a file or directory to a different
location while still retaining the history of the file?
        SVN: Yes. Renames are supported
        Perforce: Not directly (you copy and then delete but it manages
to keep track of the branch; the item below allows for this very
feature)
*Can the system propagate changes from one repository to another?
        SVN: Yes, using either Chia-Ling Kao's SVN::Mirror script or the
svn- push utility by Shlomi Fish.
        Perforce: Unknown. Probably Not.

Scott Lawrence [slawrence@pingtel.com] :

Subversion is much better for disconnected operation, because working
copy state is stored in the working copy rather than on the server.
Operations as common as 'diff against what I checked out' or 'revert my
changes' can be done locally on the working copy without talking to the
server.
