In my experience, Svn/TSvn will be a good solution for this. I'd only
suggest two things: (1) get a good binary diff tool; and, (2) make sure
that a knowledgeable CM is identified and is able to train, mentor, and
even branch/tag as necessary.

Subject: Subversion for general office use

Hi,

At work, we are considering rolling out Subversion as a version control
system for general office documents, using TortoiseSVN as a client. This
means non-technical users will be using this setup to manage word
processing documents, spreadsheets, and images (i.e. mostly binary
files). Additionally, the repositories will likely get big (gigs).

I was wondering if anyone on this group has any recommendations or
comments about using SVN for this purpose. Should I be looking for
another tool?

Thanks,
Jason
