Subversion user with non network questions

I am a software engineer for a specialized programming language called ELITE
that controls an automated wire tester. We as a company currently use 2
version control programs.


We use Code Co-op for our programs written in ELITE and Subversion for our
support programs that are written in Python and C++.


The reason we use both is currently we can't find a way to do a check in
when you don't have internet connection. Much of our time is spent at the
customer's site where we may not have internet access and we have to do
debug of the program to meet customer specs. This debug has lasted for as
much as 3 weeks without internet access. 3 weeks without ever doing a check
in can be scary since anything can happen in that much time period.


Code Co-Op allows non-networked check-ins with an email server that will
sync up when the whole project is done. I am not a huge fan of the email
server sync script method, but am happy that I have a method of version
control on site.


My question is this: Is there any planning to be able to do local check-ins
when internet connection is not found and then be able to sync up with one
master update when network connection does exist?


I have found SVK from Kwiki, but have been unable to get that to work for
me. I may be doing it wrong or it may be not what I am looking for. I do
know that I will have to set it up to work through windows as some of the
people that are programmers for ELITE know nothing of any other programming
language and don't know how to use DOS or LINUX.


Just as a note, our entire network is windows based as well as our
programming host language.
