RE: browser based svn client?

I'm not sure what came about of this PHP Binding in development...


On another note, one of the problems that the company I work for faced was
that they never could get Subversion installed on the FreeBSD boxes. So, I
was faced on how to roll out a project into production without Subversion.

The only thought I had was using RSYNC or FTP on the local copy. This hasn't
been implemented yet - too buys too. :)

Right now, I'm the go to guy when it comes to rolling out new changes
because the process entails updating my local copy, reviewing the commit
logs, pushing those changes onto production, testing, and finally
re-notifying the individual requesting to make sure everything is in order.

I didn't find anything like that either, and considered writing my  
own PHP/MySQL-based repo browser plus repo manager plus hook manager  
plus email notification manager plus working copy manager. But I  
haven't had time yet.
The PHP SVN bindings in PEAR are not so much old or aging as never  
exactly completed. I could never get them to install, and my mails  
with the developer reached an dead end.

My project was to be full-featured and general-purpose, hence large,  
hence it never got done. If all you want though is, in effect, a  
single button labeled "Update the live site's working copy" which  
calls a single shell script "svn up /path/to/working/copy" then that  
sounds like scarcely more than a handful of lines of code right there.
