Subject Re: SVN (was: RE: The cash of our lives / Dvorak)
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2003 09:30:45 GMT
One of the previous concerns was tool support. Since then, we have SVN
capability in ViewCVS, and there is also an SVN plugin for Eclipse and IDEA,
and several GUIs. SVN itself has been stable for a long while; the only real
concern [for the ASF] is the related tool support.

For Maven compatibility... somebody will just have to code it up. I believe
somebody out there has done an Ant task for SVN, but I dunno what the status
of that is, or whether it has seen its way back to the Ant folks.

SVN easily supports anonymous, read-only access (and without the nonsense of
needing to supply some arbitrary name/password like CVS). There isn't a CVS
proxy, however. Does BK actually proxy a CVS connection to the bk repos, or
do they just mirror changes into a cvs repos?

Cheers,
