[TriLUG] Open Source Document Management

I once put this combination together, and it worked well:

. Subversion
. Apache with mod_svn and autoversioning enabled, authenticating to the corp AD/LDAP
. Swish-E for full text search, reindexing via cron job every so often

The people who "just wanted a folder" got web folder (DAV) access.  The root of the document tree had a README and a link to the Swish-E web interface for searching.  Others chose an SVN client for metadata and versioning.

KnowledgeTree also has a WebDAV interface, as well as workflows.   It needed a server to itself.  The above is lightweight.  KT now makes you fill out a form to get to the community version, but I'm pretty sure it's available as RPM and DEBs.
