Re: SVN 1.4 Evaluation

Well, sounds like you are developing on Windows - you need commercial
support ;) Sorry, I'm a *nix snob.

Just so I understand, you are wanting subversion to develop your
product, or to embed in it? Your first line is ambiguous. My
multi-national company is using subversion to develop commercial
products sold around the world. Granted, we also use CVS, ClearCase,
and who knows what else for various things, but subversion is in there
and growing.

As for TortoiseSVN rev graphing feature being slow, try another
client. I don't use TortoiseSVN so I'm not exactly sure what that
does for you. When I use a GUI svn client, I use SmartSVN. I'm sure
there is something out there to help you.

From an administrative point of view, after administrating ClearCase
and CVS, subversion is a breeze. I have a script to create
repositories with the correct permissions and modes and init svnsync,
i have a script to run hourly to update authz info, and a script to do
daily/weekly repos dumps so the tape backups are worth something.
That's pretty much it.
