Subversion: what's a good Windows client for a Linux SVN server?


Hi -

We have a small development team, and I'd like to move our CVS repository to Subversion. The server will be Linux, but all client access must be from Windows PCs.

Q: Any suggestions for the best way for our developers to use SVN from their Windows PCs?

Thank you very much in advance .. PSM

We use Smart svn.

The client software is written in Java, so it doesn't matter what OS you use.

Hi -

Thank you both.

Just FYI, we're currently using WinCVS as our CVS client. It looks like SmartSVN might be a good equivalent. I'll definitely look at TortoiseSVN ... but if it's anything like TortoiseCVS (with the right-click UI), it probably won't be a good choice.

Q: When you say "cygwin + subversion", do you mean "pop up an Xwindow to the SVN server and use SVN in command-line mode"? If so, that probably wouldn't be a good choice for our team, either. For better or worse, they would definitely prefer a GUI interface...

Follow-on questions:

Q: has anybody tried Apache+WebDAV?
Q: How "user friendly" is it?
Q: Any other thoughts/suggestions about Apache+WebDev as a client UI for Subversion?

Thanx in advance .. PSM

I meant install cygwin on your client machine and use svn on the command line. It's what I prefer
