RE: Proxy (mirror repository) available for offshore resources?

If your problem truly is "slow" connection, and not sporadic or "no" connection, then there is a good chance that SVN will work for you without a mirror. We use it quite successfully over dial-up connections. However, if your real problem is unreliable connection, you probably do want a mirror. There are basically two schemes that I've heard discussed. The first is rsync'ing the two machines [probably while the SVN servers/services are taken off-line]. The second, which I suspect is a bit more complex to set up and somewhat immature compared to Subversion (but gaining traction) is something built on top of SVN and called SVK. It's here: http://svk.elixus.org/ <BLOCKED::http://svk.elixus.org/>
If you implement SVK, I'd like to hear some feedback, as we're considering it for one developer connection that is high bandwidth but somewhat un-reliable...

Subject: Proxy (mirror repository) available for offshore resources?

Hi everybody,


I am currently looking for a SCM tool which can provide a mirrored repository on a remote site, in my case at our offshore development company. Does Subversion have such a feature.? I found it in a product called Perforce. For evaluation purposes I look now for another tool which also has such a feature.


Detailed explanation:

The offshore partner has a slow connection to servers in our company where the main repository is located. So we want to provide them with a repository which resides on a server in their LAN. This repository must be an exact mirror of the main repository and every time if a developer at the offshore site updates a file then this must be updated immediately on the main repository (if internet connection is available) or in case of the internet connection not being available the mirror repository must be synched automatically as soon as the connection to the main repository is available again.


If anybody can tell me if Subversion or other SCM tools except Perforce provide this then I would appreciate very much any hint to be posted on the mailing list.
