I'm curious to know how many people are still using cpc/tfc, given that SvnBridge has been deployed and you can now use standard Subversion clients.

Show of hands? If you're still using cpc instead of a Subversion client, why?

I'm using the TFC against a local TFS server to a poor-man's sync of a code branch between an SVN repo and TFS.  As the given directory can't have two SVN repos, using SvnBridge is out.  Given the way Team Explorer works with read-only files and workspaces, using it wouldn't work for the workflow.  TFC is able to detect new/changed files (brought down from SVN) and check them into TFS.

I started to use tfc with git. First rename tfc.exe to git-tfc.exe and then copy git-tfc.exe to C:\Program Files\Git\libexec\git-core or C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\libexec\git-core

Now you can use it from git bash:

$ git init aat
$ cd aat
$ git tfc co https://tfs08.codeplex.com $/aat
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "get from codeplex"
.....
$ git tfc status
$ git tfc commit

It runs faster and smoother than using git-svn with svnBridge against codeplex.com. It also works with my own TFS 2010, like this:
$ git tfc co http://mytfsserver:8080/tfs/defaultcollection '$/test project/Source'.

Pretty cool! I will continue to explorer it more ... What do you think?

Svnbridge is broken for TFS 2010 for me (My only reason to use svnbridge was to use git).

But If I can just use tfc with git, then forget svnbridge and keep TFC, please.
