Hello Guys,
                 Have anyone setup there sheeva plug to be an SVN server for their projects. I think it is a very enviromentally friendly way to keep a back up of your development while making sure you can continue developing any where in the world.

To me, it sounds like a very interesting idea. But...
What about the storage? I wouldn't sleep at night having my repos running on an sdcard or a simple usb drive Cheesy

Hi,

I have all my SVN respositories on my plug, on SD card.  I do almost all my SVN work over SSH from my Mac, ie as svn+ssh, except for work locally on the plug.

I will be backing them up a little more often than if they'd been on magnetic disc, but I've had those fail too of course.

I installed SVN+SSH; it worked right out of the apt-get box as far as I can remember. The default repository location is under /var/local/svn/... in the root filesystem (an 8G Flash SDHC 6 card on mine). Of course, imagining I'm going to pound my CF with my svn activity (hah) I HAD to move it to a huge spinning disk.

I set up a mount point to an external HDD, and created a "var/local" path under the drive's mount point (imitating the default path mostly to avoid getting confused later). Then I prepended the mount point path to the default "var/local/svn/..." path specified in  /etc/xinetd.d/svn, rebooted, and it was ready to go.

I moved the lighthttp and mysql data directories over to that drive's var/local also; mysql was a PITA because you also have to edit apparmor files.

I am running subversion, apache, trac (xmlrpc and web frontend), mpd and some other tools on the dreamplug.
So far everything is fast enough and it works like a charm.

Storage is an external USB drive that is soon-to-be replaced by an esata drive combo.
