Subversion on Windows

Tue Feb 14 2006

I've been wanting to setup subversion for PostXING for a while so I can have more control over who has commit access and various adminy tasks that are only available thru emailing the already busy staff of sourcegear when hosting code on vaultpub.

Thankfully, I'm not the only person who has had this idea. To that end, this blog post was instrumental in outlining the steps to take to get subversion up and running on a windows box. The only issue that I had which was rather annoying was I kept getting an error stating that svn was "unable to open an ra_local session to URL" when trying to import code on the host. So, I did things the painfully slow way of adding files/folders from a client machine that already had the code on it. The good news is that PostXING now has its own subversion repository: svn:// read access is still there for all, but now I can specify who can and cannot commit changes. So nice.
