RE: Which Method? What Tools? Ideas please.

Making users copy files to multiple production servers is a pain for
everyone. Ideally your users (coders?) shouldn't even have access to
production servers.

A post-commit script to copy the file up to the production servers from the
subversion server would be pretty slick. Users only have to do one commit,
and it is guaranteed to be updated on production right away.

Just my 2 pennies.

Hello Class!

There're currently about 250 customer scripts on 4 different server NOT
under version control. I'm planning to bring all the scripts under
Subversion version control residing on its own RHLE 3.5 Linux with Apache2.

I have 2 methods in mind:

1. I plan to pull them down from the 4 Linux servers to a central place,
like my desktop, and then check them into SVN. Once under version control,
each of our users could install the SVN WinXP client on their desktop, check

out all or a specific project, modify, check in, and upload them back to its

corresponding server for our customers. Do I have to write shell scipts to
automate the upload back to the non-working folders on each of the 4
servers? Or does SVN provide such a feature?

2. Basically the same method as above, except that each server becomes an
SVN client and our users login to each box to check out their scripts,
modify, deploy to customers account folders and back to the working folder,
etc. This method entails installing SVN on each server! One thing to bear
in mind, I have set up Subversion running with Apache2 server restricted
from outside access and I prefer it this way. What method is more
preferable and more secure?

My head hurts now :/

Thank you
