RE: SVN "Relay"

Ok, but that's not what i we at work. The local svn will be a "working copy"
of the external svn. In fact, no user have to use the external svn if
there's a local svn. The goal of this is the limit the access to the WAN. If
the external svn is sync twice per day, we can limit these access and
decrease the commit time for internal user (we have no external user). A LAN
commit is faster than a WAN commit (the bandwith is lower for wan) And we
can have a better security, we have no control on what's do on the WAN with
our data and many commit from LAN to WAN are "point of access to private
data" (SSL or not, ssl is not a good security, you can spoof him easily). We
can limit this risk by limitting the data who are sent.

There shouldn't be much difference in bandwidth whether you svnsync twice a
day or immediately after every revision is committed; svnsync replays the
commits in order so they're going to be the same size either way.

No users will be writing to the LAN mirror; all users will be writing to the
master repository on the WAN, even those users who checked out from the LAN
mirror. This is accomplished by setting up a write-through proxy.
