RE: Re: Concurrent versioning = spawn of the devil?

We use Eclipse with the Subclipse plugin, which is a good client,
although using it to merge is very confusing - its not very intuitive.
It works, but getting it to generate the svn merge command you expect is
sometimes tricky. At the moment, I use Subclipse for everything except
merging, for which I use the command line because you know exactly what
its doing. And of course this is biased towards Java development.

He simply says that concurrent versioning is too dangerous, merging is
too
difficult and too much subject to error. He says that we are exposing
our
clients to too much risk if we subject their code to that kind of an
environment.

It's not helping that we can't see when a file is locked until we try to

check it in. I know ... the answer is "don't lock the damn thing" ...
but
that falls on deaf ears, I get "I'm not checking ANYTHING out unless I
can
lock it and keep all you jabronis out of it!".

The issues we're having with SmartSVN, mostly the one about SmartSVN
hanging up on us when trying to check in a locked file, are really
making
him dig in his heels.

I will have to revisit TortoiseSVN and see if I can get that to work...
the
problem there is that it doesn't remember my login name and password and
so
I have to enter my password just about every time I change directories,
gets REALLY old after about the third or fourth time. For now we are
trying to do this using login and password rather than SSH
public/private
keys, to ease client use, but I guess I'll have to revisit that.

Are there any other GUIs besided SmartSVN and Tortoise? I wasn't able
to
find any...
