Re: Migration thoughts, VSS/SOS to SVN

A few more advantages / differences:

- Better security then VSS for the repository folder. Now, because we
used SourceOffSite as our VSS front-end, this was less of an issue, but
in a standard VSS setup, any user can clobber the central repository
because they must have read/write access to the VSS database folders.

In SVN, we use public SSH keys that are restricted to only the "svnserve
-t" command and don't grant the user console rights on the SVN server.
That eliminates the potential for accidental damage to the repository
database files.

- The central revision number system has its uses. Such as being able
to see where activity is across all jobs by looking at the root node.
