spend several days reading the book front to back:

Right now I'm trying to decide whether or not I should use subversion.
 Hopefully there is a less time-consuming method for making that

My goals are to implement a good development framework and to define a
(changing) list of files which are the only files a developer is
allowed to either read or write.  If I can do that with subversion and
path-based authorization, I'd like to get an idea of the workflow
involved.  Here is a modified version of my proposed workflow.
Hopefully it is more intelligent than my last attempt:

1. I install a subversion server on my dev machine.
2. I decide which file or files I want my dev to work on and give him
read/write access to only those files (and neither read nor write
access to any other files) via path-based authorization on the
subversion server.
3. The dev uses a subversion client over an encrypted connection to
edit the permissible files.  He can test his changes via http on the
dev machine.
4. Once he is done, I test his changes via http on the dev machine and
use svn log to look at the specific changes he made.
5. I use rsync to copy the changes made to the dev machine's files to
the production machine.
6. Steps 2-5 are repeated.

Is this any better?
