Yes! Moving from VSS to Subversion

0 comments suggest edit

I just received the good news from one of my clients that they installed Subversion over the weekend. We’ve all been wrestling with using Microsoft Visual SourceCrapSafe over the VPN (and yes, we tried out SourceOffSite which helped) but the sheer number of problems we ran into was overwhelming.

I had suggested they either look at SourceGear Vault or Subversion. In the end, they went with Subversion which is fine by me. That’s just one less SCC Provider to deal with. Sweeeeet!

    Install, Learn, Love.....

    Windows shell extension for that makes many Subversion tasks about as hard as two clicks, can't recommend this enough.

    --------------- From the site

    "AnkhSVN: A Subversion addin for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

    AnkhSVN is a Visual Studio .NET addin for the Subversion version control system. It allows you to perform the most common version control operations directly from inside the VS.NET IDE. Not all the functionality provided by SVN is (yet) supported, but the majority of operations that support the daily workflow are implemented."

    What would be VERY cool is if you'd write a post about how to get Subversion working for the Windows person if you stood it up for your SCM. I'm interested in using it!

    I recently converted a VSS repository to a Subversion repository for my client.
    After that, I've released the script helping moving from VSS to Subversion ;).
    The script is written in PHP. Please take a look at or directly at http://vss-subverter.tigris...
    Best regards ;)
