The bioconductor project is on SVN. The project includes over 200
packages (the equivalent of perl modules) with something around 150-200
ACTIVE developers. They also have a build system for several OSes that
operates on a cron-like system with builds of several versions
approximately daily. Their system is running at something like revision
30,000, so they have significant experience. If anyone would like
technical support, I can certainly ask the folks maintaining their site
if they can give some input. Let me know if anyone would like a contact
As for access, the typical access is over http (or https). Access
controls can be set up on the server side while allowing anonymous
access for checkout. There are many excellent SVN for every OS, so that
should not be a problem.
