In this appendix, we’ll install Subversion, create a new repository, import our project into it, and configure Subversion to ignore the appropriate files. A full discussion of Subversion is far beyond the scope of this book—see http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ if you’re interested.
If you aren’t afraid of the command line, consider Git instead of Subversion. To learn why, see Linus Torvalds’ (creator of Git and Linux) Tech Talk at Google: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XpnKHJAok8.
First, we need to have Subversion installed. Run the following commands:
c:\peter\flexiblerails\current\pomodo>svn --version svn, version 1.4.2 (r22196) compiled Nov 3 2006, 16:53:07 ... c:\peter\flexiblerails\current\pomodo> ...
