RE: SVN Security

Yes the apache thing is a bit of a stinker, for a lot of dev-shops it is a
'no-go' for svn. The only thing that will ever change that is somebody
familiar with the internals of IIS and SVN to write an IIS DAV_SVN isapi?
layer.

To answer your question, iis and apache will work fine together. Here is
what I do.

Apache and IIS6 are installed on my public server port 80 (public) & 8080
(private) respectively, Apache is the 'front server' it is setup to run svn,
trac, awstats and 'reverse-proxy' to my IIS server which handles all the
stuff I do to get paid.

The one and only reason apache is the public server is because the windows
version of 'reverse proxy' costs a stupid amount of money, otherwise it
would have been IIS proxying to Apache.

I have been using this configuration for about a year and a half with no
issues, however in the next month or so I will be shifting to dropping
apache (trac, awstats with it) and migrating to svn-ssh and other 'tools
that actually work' on IIS

As for the requirement for 'decent security', im surprised that you havenít
been told to RTFM because its all in there.

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 ;)
