Now that I've been reading up on the use of Subversion (SVN) for SCM and version control, after testing CollabNet's subversion, their CEE integrated SCM toolbox as well the virtual appliance SFEE, I decided to go back to plain Subversion and set that up properly. That is, as far I can without much experience in daily administration, maintenance, etc. Getting ahead of myself, I briefly checked out Warehouse and Lighthouse which add resp. add a visual subversion browser and issue tracker. However, ViewVC does that and is bundled by CollabNet. Lighthouse is for later.
However, I think I'll install svnLogBrowser, which let's you visually browse the SVN logs and inspect or monitor change logs. It's much handier than the command line tool and may help getting newbies up to speed.
