This is the home of Version Control with Subversion, a free book about the the most recent versions here on this site, available in both HTML and PDF formats. O'Reilly and Associates decided to publish a full-length Subversion book, the example more appropriate to this book—the HTML, PDF, or PostScript files.

For that, the authors would like to thank Brian Behlendorf and CollabNet for the vision to fund such a risky and ambitious new open source project; Jim Blandy for the original Subversion name and design—we love you, Jim; and Karl Fogel for being such a good friend and a great community leader, in that order. Their patience and support has been tremendous. Finally, we thank the countless people who contributed to this book with informal reviews, suggestions, and patches.
While this is undoubtedly not a complete list, this book would be incomplete and incorrect without their help: Bhuvaneswaran A, David Alber, C.
She's my perfect counterbalance. Thanks to my extended family and friends for their sincere encouragement, despite having no actual interest in the subject. Thanks to all my close friends, who make me a rich, rich man.
Don't look at me that way—you know who you are. Thanks to my parents for the perfect low-level formatting and being unbelievable role mod- els. Thanks to my kids for the opportunity to pass that on. Fitzpatrick Huge thanks to my wife Marie for being incredibly understanding, supportive, and most of all, patient. Thank you to my brother Eric who first introduced me to Unix programming way back when.
Thanks to my Mom and Grandmother for all their support, not to mention en- during a Christmas holiday where I came home and promptly buried my head in my laptop to work on the book. To Mike and Ben: it was a pleasure working with you on the book. Heck, it's a pleasure working with you at work! To everyone in the Subversion community and the Apache Software Foundation, thanks for having me. Not a day goes by where I don't learn something from at least one of you. From C. Michael Pilato Special thanks to Amy, my best friend and wife of more than ten incredible years, for her love and patient support, for putting up with the late nights, and for graciously enduring the version control processes I've imposed on her.
Don't worry, sweetheart—you'll be a Tor- toiseSVN wizard in no time! Gavin, you're able to read half of the words in this book yourself now; sadly, it's the other half that provide the key concepts. But Daddy loves you both, and can't wait to teach you about programming.
SVN "quick reminders"
Mom and Dad, thanks for your constant support and enthusiasm. Mom- and Dad-in-law, thanks for all of the same plus your fabulous daughter.
Hats off to Shep Kendall, through whom the world of computers was first opened to me; Ben Collins-Sussman, my tour guide through the open source world; Karl Fogel, you are my. To the many folks from whom I am constantly picking up new knowledge—keep dropping it! Finally, to the One who perfectly demonstrates creative excellence—thank You.
What Is Subversion? That is, Subversion manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time.
Svn book 1.7 pdf
This allows you to recover older versions of your data or examine the history of how your data changed. At some level, the ability for various people to modify and manage the same set of data from their respective locations fosters collaboration. Progress can occur more quickly without a single conduit through which all modifications must occur.
And because the work is versioned, you need not fear that quality is the trade-off for losing that con- duit—if some incorrect change is made to the data, just undo that change. Some version control systems are also software configuration management SCM sys- tems. These systems are specifically tailored to manage trees of source code and have many features that are specific to software development—such as natively understanding programming languages, or supplying tools for building software.
Subversion, however, is not one of these systems. It is a general system that can be used to manage any collection of files. For you, those files might be source code—for others, anything from grocery shop- xix ping lists to digital video mixdowns and beyond.
Is Subversion the Right Tool? If you're a user or system administrator pondering the use of Subversion, the first question you should ask yourself is: "Is this the right tool for the job? If you need to archive old versions of files and directories, possibly resurrect them, or ex- amine logs of how they've changed over time, then Subversion is exactly the right tool for you.
If you need to collaborate with people on documents usually over a network and keep track of who made which changes, then Subversion is also appropriate. This is why Subversion is so often used in software development environments— programming is an inherently social activity, and Subversion makes it easy to collaborate with other program- mers. Of course, there's a cost to using Subversion as well: administrative overhead. You'll need to manage a data repository to store the information and all its history, and be diligent about backing it up.
When working with the data on a daily basis, you won't be able to copy, move, rename, or delete files the way you usually do. Instead, you'll have to do all of those things through Subversion. Assuming you're fine with the extra workflow, you should still make sure you're not using Subversion to solve a problem that other tools solve better.
For example, because Subver- sion replicates data to all the collaborators involved, a common misuse is to treat it as a generic distribution system. People will sometimes use Subversion to distribute huge col- lections of photos, digital music, or software packages.
That's all Folks!
The problem is that this sort of data usually isn't changing at all. The collection itself grows over time, but the individual files within the collection aren't being changed.And if you're actually reading this section, you're prob- ably already a top-down learner yourself!
Taken in order, front to back, the book is simply a straightforward description of a piece of software. If you want to know how to use Subversion, you can find a number of published user manuals available for download online. Version 1.
