Re: Re: Subversion vs AccuRev

I'm not interested in starting a flame-war between SVN and AccuRev. I'm
merely stating that Stephen's claims are able to be demonstrably proven
false, although clearly a newsgroup forum isn't the place where that would
happen. I'm also stating that I am only aware of a single customer who was
using AccuRev who migrated away to SVN. Others could have done so without
my knowledge, but based on our 95% plus renewal rate, they would be few and
far between, and no one of significance. Lastly, my message was intended to
be for Bryan so that he will continue to avail himself of the services
AccuRev provides him to help his organization make an educated decision, as
opposed to listening to the opinions of someone who clearly has a biased
agenda. Unlike many of the zealots out there, AccuRev does not pretend to
be the solution for everyone. However, should not those considering the
option evaluate for themselves instead of basing their decision on
unsubstantiated claims?

Best regards,
