Install Tortise sub-version

If everyone is ok, we can use Sub-version. This is required to be installed on the client.

The way it will work is 1) download a release version (or a tagged) to your client

2) make changes and ensure it 3) use subversion to check it in.

I used this URL for installing.

Note:- This is integrated into windows explorer. FYI (right-click on the folder).

We are currently on VSS 2005. We can migrate if VSS 2005 does not support codeplex. I've heard that migration from VSS to SVN is rocky. If that doesn't work out, we will have to start using SVN directly as a new project.

Alternatively, we can also consider Team Explorer Client, as mentioned here:

Does this have to be figured out before we add the source code to the project?

I looked around at other projects who used VSS, they have switched to SVN. If we switching, we might as well use SVN, and

there's an installed base huge for SVN.


Look at this conversion tool. This brings another question, that you should also use SVN in our company, so we have the

same release versions and tags later on.

If we just take out the migration part, from VSS to SVN, the equation becomes simple. I'm right now trying to make a fresh start using SVN. Here, we can all start using SVN and we should be all set.
