File transfer and data storage

At the moment we're using attachments in JIRA for documents and small pieces of data. All data with more than some megabyte are transfered separately at the moment.

Is there a plugin or solution known that allows to integrate data transfer to a repository (e.g. using WebDAV or other protocols) within JIRA?

We use a version control system for files that are not just supporting documents that exist in JIRA but are related to a problem report in JIRA.

We have configured svn, written pre-commit hooks to ensure that JIRA problem reports are required to make a change to any file in svn.

Then you can use the subversion plugin for jira, or a tool like fisheye to integrate your source control with JIRA.

Looking into documentation following questions raised: Do these plugins allow to have an up-/download functionality from within JIRA that are project specific configurable? Can the "interface" be integrated into JIRA screens?

In general we like the approach of the JIRA attachments because it provides a full integration. But it is not usable to transfer data with some dozen/hundereds/thousands of megabyte.
