The link mentioned here doesn't work no longer leads to the information it purports to: http://wiki.rabbitvcs.org/wiki/support/known-issues#no-support-for-mounted-locations

RabbitVCS currently does not support mounted locations, e.g. when you access a directory over SFTP, SMB, FTP or some other protocol with a custom URI scheme. For more information see Issue #158.

searching for sftp here doesn't return anything either.

Anything happening with including the functionality?

There is a workaround at least for SMB/CIFS (probably others too), I'll describe it here for reference.
If you are able to mount the network share to a local directory using the 'mount' command, then you can simply browse to this directory in your file manager and use RabbitVCS from there.
Be aware though that depending on network latency, using a subversion working copy over a network share ist slow. It should work okay on a LAN, but an internet connection with a round-trip time of 20-30 ms or more is a completely different story.
This approach should also work with sshfs (as a replacement for SFTP) and NFS, for example. Basically every protocol that allows you to mount a remote resource into your directory tree.

Thanks for the tips @krautsource - using a regular mountpoint rather than a custom URI scheme sounds like a sensible approach, using the right tool for the job.

@pauljherring I'm not on the development team, but I'd suggest maybe updating the wiki and closing this issue as resolved?
