Hi Gillian,

Other than the diff report (which I assume provides more details than 
just a time/date stamp) is SVN useful?

I've been wanting some centralized document management for our 
FrameMaker (and other) files for a long time. We have several folks that 
author materials, sometimes in teams. I'd like to have check in/check 
out and versioning at the very least. It would be really cool to be able 
to metatag content and search for it also.

Folks have mentioned going to MIF files or XML. Wouldn't those options 
add steps to the workflow? I assume they (MIF or XML) would affect the 
workflow in a similar fashion. Also, going to XML would require 
structure (I assume) so I don't think we're ready for that. We've 
started to use structure in some docs, but I haven't had time to 
implement that broadly.

What is PDM?

Thanks,
don.
