In Search Of... document repository software

sir_pinch-a-loafsir_pinch-a-loaf #YODORegistered User regular
So my boss asked me to research and find a good plugin or software package to use as a document repository. The list of things we need it to do is this:

-- must integrate with Atlassian Confluence ver. 2.5
-- must have built in revision control (preferably using svn)
-- must have a client easy to use whether on a mac or pc
-- must support binary and text docs
-- must be able to work on documents offline
-- should be fast, easy to use, and not add a lot of overhead to the user
-- should be free, easy to maintain, and server side repositories able to reside on mac server

Just wondering if anybody had any suggestions. I see there's an unsupported Confluence attachment checkout plugin, but it doesn't appear to support SVN.

    I don't recognize the software you've named, but SharePoint is a great way to manage multiple files/revisions across a group of people

    If I were able to start from scratch, SharePoint might be viable, but we've already got a whole thing set up in Confluence, so I'm just supposed to try to add on to it.

    Surely this is what you need?

    I think what you're basically doing is trying to find a free replacement for that anyway, that will pull in your existing (paid for) confluence wiki. I suspect you won't have much luck, since such a free product would eat into sales of the studio poduct I'd imagine atlassian are doing their damndest to make such a thing difficult if not impossible to produce.

    If you can start again I'd recommend redmine. It does pretty much everything Atlassian studio does (wiki, bug tracking, document managent, subversion repositories, time management, extensible through plugins etc etc) but it's free and open-source. I started using it a few months ago and it's an amazingly well built and integrated product.
