A beta version Subversion Edge was just released. It is a new product from CollabNet that brings together a complete Subversion installation into one easy to use package. CollabNet has been a key supporter of Subversion & has a large number of Subversion committers on staff.
Some of the features include:
- Download and install a certified stack of SVN, Apache, and
ViewVC in under 3 minutes
- Configure SVN and Apache from a single web UI - with best
practices built in
- Enable SSL with a single checkbox
- Stay current with auto-updates
- Browse SVN repositories with ViewVC
- View and manage SVN and Apache logs
- See server health stats at-a-glance
- Manage user roles and permissions
- Integrate with corporate LDAP
VisualSVN is another provider of an improved SVN installation & administration experience. They have been providing the VisualSVN Server for a few years now. The main differences with the CollabNet product is it adds the ViewVC tool for web-based browsing of your repository and server health monitoring.
If you're running on Windows, either one of these products look like a good choice for getting up and running quickly on Subversion. If you're on Linux, then Subversion Edge would be your choice since it is cross-platform.
- I don't have to worry about I/O because I use a SAN.
- RAID 5 is our backup strategy!
- I just made you a sysadmin, now you don't have to keep asking me for permissions
- I've changed all of the databases in production to use both AutoShrink and AutoClose
- Nope - the backups were on that drive too.
- Just use sa, the password is blank
- Excel can do this and much more
- Wow. It really IS the database! Sorry, guys... I've been blaming the developers and storage guys so long!
- We have more than one sql server installed here?!
I got these from a DBA I work with. Hopefully you enjoyed them...
