I have an SVN server which I use for my personal web development projects. Can I move this to Ubuntu One? Will it be accessible over the intenet? Would I be able to perform the normal SVN operations like commit and update?

If you already have a SVN server running then why would you sync the repositories with U1? – Octavian Damiean Mar 23 '11 at 13:29
I'm not sure but maybe he's asking if using U1 as a backup service for his SVN server would cause any problems. – user6658 Mar 23 '11 at 14:28
I'm pretty certain you can't use SVN with Ubuntu One like you would use the SVN server. – Thomas Ward Mar 23 '11 at 15:27

No, you can't.

At some point we thought of adding a WebDAV backend to the file sync service, and that would be a step towards being able to do svn, but it never got much traction.

Ubuntu One is not a backup service, so if you were wanting to use it for that, please disabuse yourself of the notion; there are many things that make up a good backup service, and we provide none of them, and we probably never will. People are building a backup service on top of ours, namely the deja-dup guys are doing that and that's awesome, but that's something else.

Why not use launchpad?
