Subversion 1.7 centralized metadata format loosely resembles git's

so - when the subversion guys finally adopted the great idea of centralized metadata instead of the year-long .svn-hell… they came a great leap closer to the DVCS like git or mercurial.

Just in case you use Enterprise Architect for modeling purposes, make sure you update ALL of your subversion clients at once, otherwise EA will likely start screaming at you in full voice.

And try to append "git" to "subversion" and shorten the (spoken, not written) result to your favorite 4-letter word :-)

happy versioning (alas - I still use mercurial for my private and out-of-client stuff).
