Verbatim » Interaction with SVN (bug 444430)

more details on specifics

From Verbatim's perspective

  1. A Verbatim SVN+SSH account will be setup such that commits by the user automatically use the ssh key.
  2. After a user changes a file and presses commit we will:
    1. Set the translate:author property to the currently logged in user
    2. `svn commit` as usual

From the SVN Server's perspective

  1. Install pre-revprop script and post-commit hook including configuration
  2. Get an incoming commit from the Verbatim SVN account
    1. pre-revprop checks for appropriate author
    2. post-commit does the author switch
