Hi gang,

if we are serious about wanting to move to svn, now is a good time to 
try stuff out and provide feedback.

icarus now has a Subversion server running.  It is currently at 
r4290.  Clients are at /usr/local/svn-0.17-dev/bin on icarus. 
Commons has volunteered itself to be the ASF test drive for 
Subversion.  We'll be playing with it over the next few weeks.

There are a few repositories setup right now:

* http://cvs.apache.org/repos/test/
This is a scratch repository.  Anyone can read/write to it.  Use it 
to test it out and play with it.

* http://cvs.apache.org/repos/asf/
For now, I think the plan is for this to become the master SVN 
repository for the ASF (one repository for the entire ASF).  Not sure 
yet though.  This repository is readable by everyone, but requires 
authentication for committing.  In order to add yourself, you have to 
create an htpasswd entry in /x2/svn/asf-committers in order to commit 
(/usr/local/apache2/bin/htpasswd).  Anyone with apcvs privs should be 
able to do that.

* http://cvs.apache.org/wiki/
Subversion-based wiki.  We get all of the diff-style changes we've 
been asking for if we use this.  It's also written in Python rather 
than Perl.  Plus, the Subversion backing repository is at 
http://cvs.apache.org/repos/wiki/.  You can directly commit changes 
to that repository rather than using the wiki if that suits your 

For those who hate HTTP and want to cling to SSH tunneling, I'd 
recommend checking out ra_svn (go read the Subversion docs on it). 
Also, autoversioning support should be enabled, so you should be able 
to mount these repositories with WebFolders or whatever DAV client 
suits your fancy.  (Mac OS X Finder requires turning on mod_dav_lock 
for writability which I haven't done yet.)

I do plan on adding mod_ssl, but no one has stepped up with a 
certificate or CA that we should use.  If no one suggests anything 
soon, I'll just create a self-signed CA.  Not happy about that, but 
if no one else wants it, fine.  (If someone could produce a good 
self-signed CA, it'd save me lots of time!)

Let me know if you have questions or whatnot.  This isn't official by 
any means, but this is a good time to try Subversion out and get 
feedback.  -- justin
