RE: Files in repository but not version controlled

Hi Bastiaan,

From your email it appears that you don't need a version control system
(Subversion is a version control system).

To solve your problem you may need to setup apache web server and store
your generated html & libs in the docRoot. I do this for the intranet.

Thanks
Lakshman
