RE: http vs file

Yikes. At some point, we were 4 using the file:/// approach.

What's a guy to do in a corporate environment where getting Apache or
SVNServe installed is impossible? I suppose I could get a SVN Hosting
package. This is why I opted for the file:/// approach. Installing
SVNServe on my laptop is not such a good idea since sometimes the
repository wouldn't be available (on location, teleworking, ect...)

I think we have VSS here but nobody here knows how to use it - at least,
not to my knowledge.

file:/// = DONT
IMO you should only use file:// if you are the only one using the repo
and its only for testing something either use apache + mod_dav_svn or
svnserve - the latter probably being easier
