Strategies for Repository Deployment

Due largely to the simplicity of the overall design of the Subversion repository and the technologies on which it relies, creating and configuring a repository are fairly straightforward tasks. There are a few preliminary decisions you’ll want to make, but the actual work involved in any given setup of a Subversion repository is pretty basic, tending toward mindless repetition if you find yourself setting up multiples of these things.

Some things you’ll want to consider beforehand, though, are:

  • What data do you expect to live in your repository (or repositories), and how will that data be organized?

  • Where will your repository live, and how will it be accessed?

  • What types of access control and repository event reporting do you need?

  • Which of the available types of data store do you want to use?

In this section, we’ll try to help you answer those questions.
