Some history, we are a small development company, and we build websites and apps for marketing agencies who don't have the skills in house. We might start three new projects a week.
I have wanted us to use svn for some time, but I just can't get my head around how it would benefit us. I understand it can control versions, but we have never needed to control versions of sites. As an example of a project, we might have to build a site with a cms, so we create a copy of a previous site and the apply the new HTML and add any features. Once the site is done and made live, we might never touch it again.
Something else I don't like is it seems cumbersome, each time we start a new project you would have to ssh into the server, create a new repository, and then edit a file to setup users and the config to allow access to the repository via http.
Currently we are using dropbox, and store all working copies of project in there where we can all access the files and work on them knowing they are up to date, and we FTP files up onto the server when we are ready.
Am I just completely missing the point of svn, or is it just not suitable for us?
