RE: WinXP Env - successfully using repos WITHOUT SVNServe.EXE running. OK to do?

Thanks for all responses. Rush - it would be great to keep the existing
desktop that runs the SVNServe.exe as a service, but our IT guru's are
trying to minimise the number of computers my group has (I have 3!) and
will not allow us to keep this "mini-server" going. I think we're going
to have to give the file:\\ method a go. I'm not concerned about the
permissions, since this is a very small group so it should be easy
enough to manage. I'll do some tests with multiple users commiting
large files at the same time.

Thanks for your help,

I was told that you specifically need a SAN with a cluster file system,
and that a SAN without a cluster file system will not be ok.

P.S: Paul, can you do normal quoting please? This name-prefixed weird
quoting you do is not supported by Apple Mail so it can't color the
different levels of quoting differently so it's harder to read.
