subversion as a document management system

Hello,

we are using subversion as a version control system for our software
development. The tool does a great job for this. Now we looked into
using the same ideas for document control, but had some problems
applying the underlying methods for documents. The problems are, that
documents in most cases stand for themself and primarily have the status
"Draft" or "Released". I most cases the last released version of the
document also replaces all previous releases, and some documents needs
to be reviewd by others before the can be releases. So there is some
workflow behind the document. Subversion is not the tool to enforce a
workflow, but could be a good solution to save the documents hierarchy.

Tools, that I found and that are not based on subversion in my personal
order of interest:
* DocuPortal.Net (http://docuportal.de)
* xinco DMS (http://www.xinco.org/index.php)
* Office Manager (http://www.krekeler.de)
* DocuWare AG

Nevertheless, I have not found any solution, that extends subversion
into this area. Is there anybody out there using subversion as a DMS
solution?

Best regards
Dirk
