I'm in the process of supervising a VB.NET development project and am trying to set up version control. My team has experience with SVN so we were hoping to use that -- at least internally. There are a couple of issues afloat here so I would appreciate any comments you folks might have.
One dev had suggested this for a server:
I was rather hoping instead to set up SVN via apache on my linux box here rather than installing apache on my windows box and burdening it with yet one more duty.
It interfaces with a Visual Studio plugin client that is $79:
Does anyone know if the visualsvn client interfaces with linux svn/apache?
Note that the client expects to use Team Foundation Server, a Microsoft product, and seems pretty set in their decision. Do we think it will be possible for us to use our own version control different from that of the client? I'm skeptical -- it sort of assumes some golden, age-of-aquarius cutoff date where we export from our version control into theirs and they take over. That sounds like a fantasy to me. TF Server is $500, but it might be worth it in the long run.
