Re: Subversion web interfaces

Other ones to look at: chora, trac, viewvc

viewvc is the only one I found that has bonsai-like query
functionality. All of them seemed to have comparable browse
features.

Other diff and merge tools to look at, not necessarily
web-accessible, are winmerge, xxdiff, p4 merge (free), kompare
(decent kde reimpl of p4 merge).

I didn't know about kamikaze until you mentioned it. Is it
proving fairly robust for you? The query stuff in viewvc works
well but isn't as flashy and robust as bonsai proper yet (and
browsing seems hell of slow).

Thanks
