SVN and web development

Hello guys,

First post here :D

I was using SVN for quite some time now and must admin that this is an
excellent product.

What I was recently contemplating on, is how to make some things
automatic in regards to enterprise development process and would like
to share my thoughts with you. I went through the archive but haven't
found many interesting posts on that matter. In particular, I am
interested in opinions as to how syncing process from svn server
should be carried out towards live web servers.

First of all, let me share two interesting links in this matter:


After reading above and some personal experience, I've compiled a
following list of ideas as to syncing to live servers problems:

* making a directory on a web server a "working copy" and then just
updating it to particular tag (tag in this context would mean a
snapshot of a trunk considered as release)

* making a checkout or update to /tmp directory and then sync it to
the destination htdocs

* use "svn export" as a post-commit hook after creating new tag (as
earlier, that would mean to create a new release and trigger live
servers update)

I was wondering what would be your thoughts on this matter.
