CollabNet has subversion edge.


I'll let everyone know how I make out.

I'd like to Thank Dave Anastasio for all his help.

OK, you just made me giggle. Solaris has to be considered legacy, at this
point: since Oracle bought Sun, they're pushing customers towards Linux,
particularly Oracle's rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as quickly as
possible. You'd be out of the frying pan and into the fire that way.

RHEL works well, and is very stable for servers. There are free rebuilds of
it, particularly the very well integrated Scientific Linux, if you're
feeling budget conscious. SL 6.3 comes with Subversion 1.6.11 and is quite

If you want the latest/greatest Subversion for that distro, the RPMforge
repository is about to include Subversion 1.7.6 from my published tools at
http://github.com/nkadel/. Or you can test invest in commercial support from
Wandisco or CollabNet (and test their free downloads for RHEL, which work
very well.)

Good luck with that: it's not a toolkit I've used. The hard part. for me,
has been negotiating and implementing account management and workflow, which
are not really inherent in Subversion itself. There are so *many* options,
I'm encouring the commercial packages (such as WanDisco or CollabNet) for
server setups.
