RE: SVN Security

Yea, the only problem is Apache. I've already have IIS on my server, not
sure they can live together or not. I want to use SVN, so I can learn. But
SVN forces me to learn Apache, which I don't think I am going to use it in
any other way but SVN, kindof a waste.

If SVN server can provide decent security configuration, it will be a killer
app.

I've been using SVN on win32 for about 18 months. The security features are
easy
to understand:

========
[/trunk]
john = rw
calvin = r
========

How difficult can that be?? Hopefully in time these permissions will be
embedded
in the repos itself, and will be enforced through all connection types.

The requirement for Apache on a windows box is less ideal when you are
running
IIS, but you'll grow to love Apache, and its easy configuration. It has a
proper
configuration file instead of loads of junk in the registry!!

Transparent config files are something Microsoft is (sloooowwwly!)
rediscovering
with .NET etc. Given a decade IIS will probably work much like Apache does
now... only it will take up 4 times the memory ;)
