Searching how (or for what information) using the SVN tools?

Some ideas...

- Setup an HTTP browseable version of the repository, then index it
using a web server search engine? (There are probably web front-ends to
SVN repositories that let you browse/search and do the indexing for you.)

- Do a daily/hourly export to a read-only network share that developers
can search through. We used this method with VSS (it also served as a
snapshot of the current repository HEAD version and we backed it up
along with the VSS database files). That's assuming that your users are
working from a large repository where they're not pulling everything
down locally.
