We use subversion, and giving web access to the repository through the
normal subversion frontend, no special additions, works for us, but our
needs have been basically just to get a last known good configuration to
blow onto a customer's replacement unit prior to dispatching a
technician. Works pretty well, as you can just download the file from
the repository, put it on the unit with xmodem over the serial port as
the startup-config, reboot, and you've got an identical copy of what was

We do this with Adtran Total Access 900 and Netvanta gear and our Cisco
CPE using the same config in Rancid (using "cisco" as the type works
just fine for Adtran AOS based gear) and it's a lifesaver.
