I don't use Subversion so I can't answer that part of the question.
I don't quite understand how/why replication (master vs. mirror) is a
My point is that with csup/cvsup, people need to be aware that there is
"CVS checkout"-like file also associated with things which lives in
/var/db/sup (for csup) and /usr/sup (for cvsup) which needs to be
removed if you pull files out from underneath it (e.g. rm -fr
I could write another 5-6 paragraphs about this explaining the technical
aspects, comparing it to stock CVS (re: CVS/ directory during checkout)
and other things, but it's besides the point.
My point is that most people don't know of /var/db/sup and /usr/sup, and
when you make them aware of it, they go "...oh! Maybe that's how my
local copy doesn't match with what's on the server!"
