Support for server-side working copies

Trac could support the creation of server side working copies for specific directories and users. A server side working copy could be accessed via WebDAV. The proposed functionallity involves the following:

  • An UI to create a new server side working copy.
  • WebDAV read/write access to working copies.
  • An UI to commit server side working copies.

This is a big project, but seems rewarding, because it would abstract away the revision control system for the end user.

See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/apc.html for a comparision of WebDAV and Subversion features.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Trac is not trying to become a replacement for the SVN client, or GUI clients like TortoiseSVN and is trying to become less tied to SVN so that other version control backends can be provided.

This could be implemented as a plugin, but it seems like it would be quite problematic to manage working copies on the server since multiple users could overwrite each other's changes and there is no way to mediate this since working copies themselves are not directly versioned.
