RE: Limits on use of the file scheme

Hi Simon,

-> At the moment we are simply accessing the subversion
-> repository using the file scheme and a shared drive (all windows
-> 2000). It seems that it would be better for us to run a svnserve
-> process, however the system admins are somewhat worried about running
-> servers.

svnserve run as a service using svnservice or firedaemon is painless and
reliable. There shouldn't be any problems if you use FSFS repositories
for ra_local (i.e. don't use BDB on a network share), but you'll find
ra_svn a better long term solution, and easier for upgrades/maintenance
(i.e. stop the service to stop svn access). We started small and grew
as our confidence/faith in svn grew, now most of our work is subversioned.

We used ra_local for around 5 months (from memory it was svn v0.24)
then switched to ra_svn (since Sept.2003), no problems with either
in over 2 years. sysadmins are happy they have nothing to do, I'm
happy (as svnadmin and user) it's all working well.


p.s. nice gmail address
