Right now my company is using a network share to communicate with the SVN repository. It's really slow so I'd like to switch to SVNSERVE.
The main reason my company chose to go the filesystem route was because it made it easy to secure using our existing active directory authentication system.
From what I've read it is possible to use SvnServe with active directory as long as you use the Sasl library. I was just wondering if anybody else out there is doing this and could give some pointers on configuration since it doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.
We have svn on a fast server but it is unfortunately used for other corporate file shares and services.
I'm being told that HTTP protocol won't be faster than file:// with SMB. Does anybody have any documentation of this. I figured a true client server model would perform better. We have about 13 developers and a build server committing and updating from it all day.
