Question subversion and ooo strategy


Hi--

Please help me put the pieces together in my head.

I want to use subversion with OpenOffice.org. When I read the book on svn there is a lot of talk about writing code and that does not compute for me (please forgive the pun!).

We have 4 users doing word processing and spreadsheets in a production environment. All 4 users access the same files over a samba network. My hope is to prevent data corruption from several people all editing the same file at once. OOo unfortunately does not have that protection, as I have found out.

So I have installed subversion and ooosvn on one machine. I have also downloaded but have yet to install odfsvn.

1. Where do I put what? I am thinking that I need to put subversion on my samba server.

2. What goes on the client boxes? I suspect I need to have subversion loaded there, too, along with say ooosvn. Do the clients and the server all have repositories then?

On my one machine, I tested one file and it sometimes saves to the server and sometimes does not (I think--haven't tracked it carefully), but ooosvn seems to be working on just one machine. It seems to me it ought to have at least two clients before it does anything. What am I missing?

3. Is there a preferred way to set up svn? I like the idea of simple file locks for our small network. svn's default of everybody working on it at once and sort out the changes later seems overkill for me--and a lot of work.

Well, that is enough questions to start. Have searched but have not found a howto for word processing on svn.

Thanks!
