Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the replies, I think i'll take a look at CruiseControl it
seems nice.
Also about the .svn folder, its stupid but I didn't thought about
disallowing this directly from IIS. :P

And Sean, just wondering how would you manage your deploy with svn export ?
If I do a svn export over a current existing copy, if there was old
files in the head copy, basically it won't delete
those files in my local copy. So theorically, I would have to delete
everything then do export ? Or do you have another way ?

Thanks guys!
