RE: Re: Other svn uses - Binary files

If you're just looking for a use-case or a reason why non-tech people
would like to use SVN), I use SVN at home as an alternative for
synchronization. I have all my documents stored in a SVN repository and
I checkout the files to my laptop. Then I can choose when I want to
commit any changes back to the server. This gives me the advantage of
having a backup copy of my files on another server. It also gives me
the advantage (over file synchronization) of history. So I can always
get (and restore) a previous copy of it from the server or even just
undo all my changes since my last commit.

I'm not sure what kind of example you want, but I can tell you we do
it all the time and svn handles binary files without any problems. You
just need to lock any binary file before changing them.
