Subversion document management

I’ve been thinking about putting together a basic documentation management system with python and subversion. Some python and cron to manage business documents stored in samba/nfs file shares, auto-injecting them into a subversion repository.

This article by the CVS homedir author about Subversion homedir has some useful tips about svn:externals.

    What I’m looking for is a way to have a wordpress like interface for uploading and displaying documents with anything in the back end (mysql, cvs, subversion whatever). Have you got anywhere with this?

    Particular reason why it has to be a wordpress interface? I’m not sure I can see how a wordpress interface would work. At the moment, my thinking is more of a passive system. Picking up changes (cron) to the files automatically, and pushing it into the subversion database. Dealing with conflicts via emailing someone. Mostly for passive backups, and being able to revert to an old version.

    If you want a web interface, something like SDMS might be a simpler way to go. There are a few good php-based filemangers out there.
