Re: Big companies using Subversion ?

Sean,

I'm in a similar situation and things are getting more tedious the more we
use SVN. We lock down everything in our repositories and give write access
only at the project level. Needless to say our authz file is very cumbersome
to maintain by hand. There have also been a couple problems due to typos. I
didn't find any decent tools other than scripts for editing authz files
either. So, I wrote one.

It's called Suafe. It's basically a GUI editor for authz files, written in
Java and Swing. You can download a copy from http://suafe.xiaoniu.org/. It's
still a work in progress, although I use it myself to maintain our authz
file. Hopefully, it'll come in handy for somebody other than myself.
