Apart from the very good suggestions already made, you might like to consider using SSH to automatically invoke an instance of the subversion server each time one of your developers needs to do something on the repository. This gives you the benefit of having your sessions encrypted on the wire, and allows you to use an existing user base. It also means, like starting svnserve from inetd, that you don't need to worry about explicitly starting it or having a largely quiescent daemon hanging around. (This latter point very much depends on the level of activity you expect to see on your server, of course). It takes a little more work to get it working smoothly, but I find it a very handy way of going about it. The excellent Subversion book has much more information. Chapter 6 will probably be of interest. http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/index.html HTH Dan -- Daniel Bye PGP Key: http://www.slightlystrange.org/pgpkey-dan.asc PGP Key fingerprint: D349 B109 0EB8 2554 4D75 B79A 8B17 F97C 1622 166A
