Indeed does not look like tsoHost supports subversion, git, or trac as a 1-click
application. It may be possible to set them up as custom applications though
(your subversion setup on webfaction is a custom setup of an svnserve 1.9.4
server), so you would need to check that. But remember that memory restrictions
are also tight with tsoHost.
What surprises me though is that all tsoHost plans offer infinite bandwidth.
That sounds too good to be true...
If that doesn't work out, my advise would be to search for a hoster that
supports subversion out of the box. But they may be difficult to find. Cost
should not be a concern. Compared to what you spend on PhD students and
postdocs, or even hardware, that should be peanuts...
It is true that pretty much all new projects choose git, but the philosophy
behind it is very different from subversion. So expect disruption on your end if
you plan to go down that route. This starts with simple references to revisions
in bug reports that would no longer have any meaning, test suite scripts that
will no longer work, etc. It is all more or less fixable of course, but you have
to consider whether that is where you want to spend your efforts. Subversion
continues to be supported by Apache and is good enough for Cloudy.
