RE: SVN Security

Since I really want to try SVN, I forced myself to spend 1 hour on Apache.
Pretty cool features, maybe better and easy than IIS. But I am doing
ASP.NET, so I can not use it to host my site, but it's perfectly OK to host
my SVN.

Now the question about security again:

In Perforce, I could say:

Developers -w //perforce /....build

Basically all the developers won't have write access to all *.build files in
the whole repository.

If SVN can do this, it'll be great. But if it can not, I can live with it. I
could group all these files together and set directory permission.

Now I start to love SVN, only hope it's as stable as Perforce.

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

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

john = rw
calvin = r

How difficult can that be?? Hopefully in time these permissions will be
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
IIS, but you'll grow to love Apache, and its easy configuration. It has a
configuration file instead of loads of junk in the registry!!

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