Summary

We covered a number of fundamental Subversion concepts in this chapter:

  • We introduced the notions of the central repository, the client working copy, and the array of repository revision trees.

  • We saw some simple examples of how two collaborators can use Subversion to publish and receive changes from one another, using the copy-modify-merge model.

  • We talked a bit about the way that Subversion tracks and manages information in a working copy.

At this point, you should have a good idea of how Subversion works in the most general sense. Armed with this knowledge, you should now be ready to move into the next chapter, which is a detailed tour of Subversion’s commands and features.
