VisualSVN is not a generic MSSCCI/SCC provider

Here are the reasons why.

  • MSSCCI is dedicated to Visual SourceSafe and is not compatible with Subversion;
  • MSSCCI is dedicated to Checkout-Edit-Checkin approach, but Subversion is built for Edit-Merge-Commit;
  • MSSCCI doesn't provide atomic transactions;
  • MSSCCI provider can't show status of folders;
  • only one MSSCCI provider is available at this time. There are use cases where Subversion and Visual SourceSafe controlled projects are used together in one solution.
