Hi Srinivas,

Can you detail the actual technical issues that prompt you to use
general statements like "it can get hairy" and "don't get the same
visiblity". We are a large software company using Subversion and do
support multiple versions in the field, quite happily.

Without details your post starts to sound like a troll for Accurev since
it comes spontaneously, nearly a year after the original post, and has
content similar to an Accurev press release which you reposted here:

(Note, I've nothing against Accurev, it may well be a fine product --
I've not used it. The way your post comes just makes me wish for more
details and less generalities.)
