Sounds like we should get together an have a mutual grump over a decent
The plan at the moment is to buy VisualSVN licences, because we don't
trust all our developers to follow the procedure without integration
into the IDE (Visual Studio 2005). Some people just like to have their
hands held, don't they, and it's worth taking away any excuse they may
have for not doing things properly. But this should at least give us
the opportunity to tell the powers that be that the licenses cost £27.00
per developer, and more if they want support. We can forget to tell
them that it's all built on OSS software. Crazy, I know, but it will
The only technical hurdle I have left is to work out why Visual Studio
insists on holding the .sln file for Web services in a different part of
the file system from the actual Web service itself. Unless I can sort
that out, I don't see how I can put the .sln file under source control
(in the same place in the repository as the solution it controls), which
I must do. Somehow I've either got to change VS's behaviour, or
discover some way of dealing with it in Subversion.
If anyone's already solved this, I hope they'll let me know - but I
realise it's off-topic for this list.
