Subversion client for GNOME (nautilus integration)
Do you know of any Subversion (SVN) client that integrates with nautilus, or at least do you know of any nautilus-scripts that enable the integration with SVN?
I basically need just 3 options from the GUI: commit, update and log with option to compare versions. In KDE I used kdesvn, but I don't think there is an easy way to integrate it with nautilus...
Any thoughts?

I think I found something interesting:
These are just simple bash scripts but they seem to do the job so far. Anyway, if someone knows a better app (sth like kdesvn, snce I'm not even dreaming of TortoiseSVN-like app for Linux), please drop a note.

QSVN a fantastic client for Subversion

this is the site for it. The site is not very good, but the application is fantastic. When I used to use windows I used tortoisesvn, this is as good.

This is not integrated though, but you wont regret using it.

Just stumbled over this one. It's very, very early and I haven't even tried it out yet (not sure I wanna try 0.0.1 versions, but perhaps someone wants to!)

Here's the link:

It's said to work similar to TortoiseSVN (which, if it's true, would be a god sent!)

svn client for ubuntu
I know it's been quite a while since this thread was created. I just stumbled upon RapidSVN, available for the Gnome desktop environment. Currently testing it out to see how it compares to kdesvn and tortoise svn on the windows platform.

How good is RapidSVN?

Thanks in advance for your comments :)

I have tested RapidSVN 0.1.0 (the one included in Ubuntu Karmic)
The repository browsing feature is OK but the local copy management is not sophisticated enough. For example I couldn't find any way to define an ignore list and RapidSVN seems to ignore the settings of the SVN client (e.g.: global-ignore).

I am currently testing RabbitVCS and its Nautilus integration. It looks very good so far.
- Gets the settings of the SVN client automatically (like global-ignores) and seems to use them properly (at least with Add so far)
- It integrates with Nautilus nicely. It annotates file and folder icons with their SVN status.
- Its repository browser is fairly sophisticated

RabbitVCS has a PPA for Karmic so it is easy to install it.
