Working across the continents

Newbie here.


Background: our shop is Clearcase/UCM, and it's not working optimally
for us -> investigating alternatives. One question:


Situation: Our development teams (300 developers) are split 30% USA, 70%
India, over a not too fast network. I wouldn't call it slow, but it's
not super fast. (I've worked at 50% USA, 30% Singapore, 20% Gemany
situation, thus they were working 24 hours a day). So, my situation is
not unique.


If we have a single repository, say in the USA, then developers in other
continents will have to deal with our -not too fast, but decent-
network. Of course, one solution is to upgrade the networ$$$k.


If we have distributed repositories, then developers access a local
network (faster) and can also take advantage of the work done by other


I've gone thru the svn book and there is no talk about this topic.


Question is: what is SVN solution for teams working over long distance?


Thanks in advance
