While at Borland, my documentation engineering group
implemented Subversion+TortoiseSVN for storing XML and
All writers used the system and loved it, especially
with the intuitive integration of the Windows File
Explorer. A number of writers told me that they did
not want to go back to a more traditional tool with a
separate user interface.
We set up a short web page to cover what to install
and some getting started material. That was about it
>From a back-end perspective, Subversion+TortoiseSVN is
very powerful and flexible, really an open framework.
We were able to quickly deprecate an ASP.NET/DB tool
that we used for tracking XML meta-data by tracking
the settings in SVN. Our XML automation scripts in ANT
also integrated and worked well with SVN.
Best of luck with your decision.
