Someone would need to provide some documentation to assist
both committers and users. We have various FAQs and tips
for using CVS as a user, and we have this for committers:
as well as various stuff at
but there are no tips about SVN at Apache.

The Apache infrastructure@ list says that there is a "test"
repository that we can use. We should try a cvs2svn there first.

Is there an equivalent to ViewCVS for browsing older versions?

The reports a quite old Subversion server.
Surely it would be better to wait until release of 1.0 (which
is due on 2004-02-23) and an Apache upgrade.

I think that all committers would need to use a recent Subversion
client. For example my RedHat has ancient subversion-0.17, so i am
now upgrading it to be ready for our test.
