An error occurred while updating the web server plugin configuration
FSFS repositories (introduced in version 1.1) do not have this restriction; however, due to a limitation in Win9x's file-locking support, they also don't work in Win9x.To reiterate, the Subversion client can be run on any platform where APR runs.svnserve speaks a custom protocol, while mod_dav_svn uses Web DAV as its network protocol.See chapter 6 in the Subversion book to learn more. The long answer: if you just want to access a repository, then you only need to build a Subversion client.For that, you should devise some other mechanism of distinguishing releases, such as using tags.The question is a bit loaded, because everyone seems to have a slightly different definition of "changeset", or a least a slightly different expectation of what it means for a version control system to have "changeset features".Server requirements depend on many factors, such as number of users, frequency of commits and other server related operations, repository size, and the load generated by custom repository hooks.When using Apache, it is likely that Apache itself will be the biggest factor in memory usage.
Subversion has been in development since 2000, and became self-hosting after one year.
(This is similar to how branches and tags are conventions built on top of copies, instead of being basic concepts built into Subversion itself.) Each time you commit a change, the repository stores a new revision of that overall repository tree, and labels the new tree with a new revision number.
Of course, most of the tree is the same as the revision before, except for the parts you changed.
The Subversion server can also be run on any platform where APR runs, but cannot host a repository on Win95/Win98/Win Me. The "Subversion Filesystem" is not a kernel-level filesystem that one would install in an operating system.
Instead, it is Subversion's repository interface, which is a "versioned filesystem" in the sense that it stores a directory tree whose state is remembered from revision to revision.
