Hi all,

After one year in my new company, I finally succeeded in convincing my
software department manager to switch from Visual Source Safe to
Subversion. I just have then to convince my IT department to make it
run on a Linux server instead of a Windows server (clients are running
under Windows XP).

I would like then to compile into a single short document all the pro's
for running the subversion server on a Linux machine.

I've read the archives and found some ideas.

I intiate the list by topic ...

1- Scripting :
1-a : Scripting languages are easier to setup/develop under *nix
systems. Implementing fine-tuned hooks (server side) is more comfortable
in a *nix environment.
reference :
1-b : to be continued...

2- Performance :
2-a : "NTFS Filesystem does not seem to perform well with large bnumber
of small filles" (I can't confirm it since I absolutely does not know
Windows NTFS capabilities)
reference :

2-b : to be continued...

3- To be continued :

... And I would appreciate your answers to make it as precise as

Thank you very much for your precious feedback !


Please, note that the "subversion configuration" used will be :
Subversion with apache and probably accessed through https.
