General Development "Say, you've got an SVN for your OpenSource project and would like to mirror it to some remote location that hosts opensource projects (such as SourceForge.net or dev.java.net). I'll skip the phase of an account and project registration and assume you've already got your credentials and SVN repo url. I also assume you are on Debian or Ubuntu and your SVN is up and running under Apache httpd."

Fair enough, but that's basically only for ease of demonstration. The thing would work on any *nix as far as I can see. Debian/Ubuntu is really required only for aptitude, making the equivalence with any other package manager is easy enough.

I really didn't *need* to say anything but as I use an svn client on my mac and freebsd machines, and linux and freebsd servers, I couldn't resist the urge to mention that svn runs great on each. My boss even uses a windows client to check up on our projects *gasp* ;)

I personally know a lot of people using svnd to even host svn repository on their windows machines.
SVN is a superb tool - really cross-platform and really great - no matter what operating system you're running.
I can't miss a chance to say THANKS to each and every SVN developer - your prouct is the best!
:)
