[jsword-devel] svn problem

In testing the svn plugin I failed to apply a patch created using svn. 
The process appears fundamentally broken because it treats the "leading 
path segment" wrongly.

We have 4 options that I can think of:
1. Stay with CVS
2. Find a new way of working. I like being able to review changes to the 
main branch so I'm not keen on throwing the doors open, but we could 
work with a branch per developer and merge between the branches in much 
the same way the bitkeeper and the Linux kernel seems to work. This is 
just an idea though and may not work
3. Do our SVN interaction using TortoiseSVN. This may not work of course.
4. Do our SVN interaction using command line tools. Which would be a 
right pain for windows development.

2 feels like too big a jump to do without more thought. 3 and 4 are not 
mutually exclusive, but both would be a pain for windows developers. So 
I've become very nervous about switching to svn right now.

Any input?
