Re: VSS and Sharepoint

Levi,

I'm a happy VSS-to-SVN user. I recently migrated some bases (Visual Studio
2003 development) and all the users are satisfied. I recommend you do that.
I tried to do some imports with vss2svn. Some worked, other not. I think the
VSS corrupt bases don't like to be exported.

Sharepoint has another critical issue, that's making us thinking about
leaving it. It keeps only the 10 last versions of the docs. I don't know
why... I didn't think about a replacement yet, but I think some other issue
tracking and/or project management tools might help.

I had some non-techical users using documents in CVS/TortoiseCVS. It's very
similar. I didn't had some terrible problems, but I think Mac will be yours.
