right. And I would not expect all the functionality of a ClearCase or
BitKeeper, but on the other hand, svn is much easier to use for some
things than BK was, so don't get me wrong, for what it is, it's very
good. I just have a feeling that a little bit more tool support in the
subversion level would go a long way to making a whole CM environment
based on it easier to deploy.

I presume itis an issue tracker of some kind? I had a look at the web
page of scarab (http://scarab.tigris.org/) which in concept at least is
appealing since presumably it is nicely integrated with svn. Anyone have
any experience with it? We want configurable workflows (i.e. state
machines) and fully configurable fields.
