The only real weakness in SVN that I have noticed is "merge history"
between branches and trunk. Currently all my users must add detailed
commit comments when submitting merged changes from other branches.
Comments would include the actual 'svn merge -r 3456:3457 ...' command

        We are evaluating Subversion tool. We found Subversion is indeed
good at many features, e.g. directory versioning, branch and merge,
atomic commits and http protocol.
        We also want to know about the weakness of subversion. We search
on the internet but found little of this. Does anyone know some
information about weakness of subversion?Or subversion limitation? e.g.
Concurrency, numbers of users submitted at the same time
        Thanks a lot.
        Best Regards,
