I've setup an SVN server using these two guides: http://www.sonzea.com/articles/subversion-trac.html http://developer.apple.com/tools/subversionxcode.html and it seems to work. I can browse the repository from WebSVN fine and I can change the repository from the command line. I can also see the repository in Xcode 3 but I get a permission denied error when I try to import a project from Xcode which is odd as the SVN repo is in my home directory and was created with my user name (not using sudo). Xcode gives me the green light saying I am authorised in the repo but won't let me do any modifying. What (most likely simple) step have I missed out? Edit : Fixed it by using the file interface rather than an https interface with the SVN server. Not the clearest of methods though, god knows how to connect to remote servers.
