RE: Subversion roll-out strategy questions?

Luckily when I installed SVN on a Linux RHEL3.5 server I ran into no
problems! Beginner's luck? :)

I dowloaded the latest for rhle3.5 and installed them in the following order
as root or sudo:

1. sudo rpm -i neon-0.24.7-1.i386.rpm (or latest)
2. sudo rpm -i subversion-LATEST-stable-version.rhel.i386.rpm
3. sudo rpm -i mod-dav-svn-LATEST-stable-version.rhel.i386.rpm
4. sudo rpm -i subversion-tools-LATEST-stable-version.rhel.i386.rpm
5. sudo rpm -i swig~.rpm (if you're going to install perl or python
6. sudo rpm -i perl or pythom.rhel*.rpm

if no error msgs...then type svn at the prompt to see the svn get help
reply. Then I created my repo, imported my project from cvs, set up apache,
my admin files, email notifications, etc.

The installation and set up took me about an hour but the killer was the
cvs2svn conversion that took about 15 hrs.

Good luck :)

I work on a team of web developers and designers for a university and we
would like to implement Subversion on our testing server. While we all
recognize the need for some kind of version control, none of us have much
experience in the area. I think that everyone is a little hesitant to get
started because we don't want to get things wrong from the outset and saddle
ourselves with a screwed up implementation.

Our testing server is a Red Hat box which we access primarily via Samba
shares. Our sysadmin has installed Subversion for us, but he has little
experience with it either, so nothing has been added to it yet. We use
mostly PCs, with the occasional Mac. Our files are primarily html, graphics,
and some php.

Should we just dive in head first by adding everything into Subversion and
fumble our way along? Or is there some easier way to gradually get everyone
up to speed? I'm open to any suggestions, advice, or pointers. Will
Subversion be easy enough for our part-time student workers to be able to
handle without screwing things up?
