Subject Re: SVN?

We experimented briefly with SVN a month or so ago and decided it 
wasn't ready for production use yet:

1) None of the servers we were willing to certify for production met 
its requirements for up-to-dateness of packages (it takes a lot of 
brand new, with particular patches, packages).

2) Database corrupts far too often. It is an "easy to fix" corruption, 
and they include the tool to do it, but... no thank you.

Other than that it worked nicely.
