Re: Subversion fits for a content management system?

Hi Marcelo,

We use svn to manage our huge amounts of animations that change on a
daily bases.

We even have a colocated site with a few svn repos for our
international projects.

When we first started using svn (v1.2.3 days), we just put all of our
stuff in it and through some years of growing pains and learning, we
now carefully plan what our new repos will do.

We have about 10 repos total serving anything from code to animation
files (Houdini and Maya).

I'm currently working on implementing a batch queueing (render queue)
system to work with our repos.

The gist of it all, is that svn is very cool however without a well
thought out plan, nothing tuens out well.

So my advice is plan out your dir structure and take into account
file system limitations of what ever OS you run. Also determine what
does and what doesn't need to be under version control.

Once you have it dialed in, svn will save your a$#!
