I have to admit, I have something of a weakness for version control software, such as Subversion! My various jobs in the industry have brought me into contact with quite a few packages, including Polytron PVCS, Continuus, SourceSafe, P4, CVS, and (more recently) Subversion. Each of these is powerful in its own right.
It’s also fair to say that each version control product has its vagaries. Subversion is no exception, but it is really powerful and packs a big punch.
I hope the five steps I’ve described here help you rapidly get your Subversion project under way.
