I'm working on porting the latest beta release of Subversion, which does all that and more, and has much better diff support than Perforce. After using Perforce for my PAM work, I've come to the conclusion that although it's a big step forward from CVS in one direction (change management & branching), it's a big step backward in almost every other direction. See http://www.tigris.org/files/documents/15/48/svn-design.html for details about the Subversion design. (in order to make a proper Subversion port, though, we need a port of the Apache Runtime - my port currently builds APR as part of the SVN build) DES -- Dag-Erling Smorgrav - [EMAIL PROTECTED] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
