    I would like to implement Sub Version (SVN) as our version control for cloverleaf. My first thought is to add each site folder to the repository while excluding certain subdirectories (exec/processes). We would setup a job to commit the sites every night and capture any changes to TCL procs, alerts and other configurable items. I think the biggest impact is setting it up when the site is imported and then checked out since it would require a downtime. Other than that it should be transparent to the end user.

    I am looking for any suggestions or tips from anyone who has taken on this task.

    Thank you

      Hi,

      This may or may not be helpful, but our team will be weighing the pros and cons for this in the near future, at some level.  One of the thinngs I am advocating for is actually separating the “executable” code” (ie the code (Xlate, tclprocs etc. that sit in a given $HCISITEDIR) from the source (which could live in another directory structure / repository outside of the engine site directories.  I think it may be a safer and less impactful method of maintaining the code.    Of course we have not tried this, so this may or may not be problematic.

      I have considered adding a nightly cron job on my production system to use rsync to make a backup of the whole production site onto a test server.  Then on the test server I could use any version control system I wanted and I would have a place to do analysis of the system without being on the production system and without impacting the production system.
