Version Control with Subversionby Ben Collins-Sussman and Brian W. Fitzpatrick and C. Michael Pilato
Synopses & Reviews
Written by members of the development team that maintains Subversion, this is the official guide and reference manual for the popular open source revision control technology. The new edition covers Subversion 1.5 with a complete introduction and guided tour of its capabilities, along with best practice recommendations.
Version Control with Subversion is useful for people from a wide variety of backgrounds, from those with no previous version control experience to experienced system administrators.
Subversion is the perfect tool to track individual changes when several people collaborate on documentation or, particularly, software development projects. As a more powerful and flexible successor to the CVS revision control system, Subversion makes life so much simpler, allowing each team member to work separately and then merge source code changes into a single repository that keeps a record of each separate version.
Inside the updated edition Version Control with Subversion, you'll find:

One of the greatest frustrations in most software projects is managing changes to information. This guide, written by members of the Subversion open source development team, introduces the powerful new versioning tool designed to be the successor to the Concurrent Version System or CVS.
This is the official guide and reference manual for Subversion, the open source revision control technology that is used to keep track of different code versions when changes are made — valuable when several developers work on the same software project. The new edition is updated for Subversion 1.5 and includes Subversion Best Practices.
