Chapter 13. The Subversion Version Control System

The Subversion version control system is a powerful, open source system for management of file and directory versions. Designed from the ground up to support distributed development, it offers many leading-edge features.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Conceptual overview

  • Using Subversion: a quick tour

  • The Subversion command line client: svn

  • Repository administration: svnadmin

  • Examining the repository: svnlook

  • Providing remote access: svnserve

Version control was introduced in Chapter 12, which contains a comparison of Subversion, GIT, and other popular systems. The material in the current chapter is adapted from Version Control with Subversion, Second Edition, by C. Michael Pilato et al. (O’Reilly). See that book for much more information on Subversion.
