Subject RE: Seeking recommendations on sharing Subversion config within a development team
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2012 15:02:11 GMT
The easiest way to do this on Windows is storing the relevant entries in the
registry. The standard Windows management tools make it easy to keep those
synchronized over multiple tools.


The per user settings are under:


And the common settings are under:


(add WOW6432 when necessary for Win64)


You can also use a configuration file in the all users appdata, just like
you can use setting files in /etc/ on unix.

development team


We mainly use Windows for development, so I'm thinking more about sharing
the %APPDATA%\Subversion\config file.  (Which if I recall correctly is the
same as the $HOME/.svn/config on a *nix system.)

I'm okay with sharing the entire directory contents or just a single file.
Since we have a team of about 50 developers, it'd be really beneficial to
keep everyone up to date.  Maybe it's just as simple as having the system
administrators push out updates to everyone's system.

Has anyone tried to tackle this problem before I possibly go re-invent the
wheel.  :)

I'd like to be able to ensure that all of the developers always have the
latest corporately-approved configuration.

Individual config files, s in $HOME/.svn config files? Or a Subversion
published configuration for development environments?
