Unix+clones Keeping Your Life in Subversion
Post date: October 2, 2005, 11:10 Category: Software Views: 1180 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: I keep my life in a Subversion repository. For the past five years, I've checked every file I've created and worked on, every email I've sent or received, and every config file I've tweaked into revision control. Five years ago, when I started doing this using CVS, people thought I was nuts to use revision control in this way. Today it's still not a common practice, but thanks to my earlier article "CVS homedir" (Linux Journal, issue 101), I know I'm not alone. In this article I will describe how my new home directory setup is working now that I've switched from CVS to Subversion.

Subversion is a revision-control system. Like the earlier and much cruftier CVS, its purpose is to manage chunks of code, such as free software programs with multiple developers, or in-house software projects involving several employees. Unlike CVS, Subversion handles directories and file renaming reasonably, which is more than sufficient reason to switch to it if you're already using CVS. It also fixes most of CVS's other misfeatures. Subversion still has its warts, though, such as an inability to store symbolic links and some file permissions, and its need for twice as much disk space as you'd expect thanks to the copies of everything in those .svn directories. These problems can be quite annoying when you're keeping your whole home directory in svn. Why bother?

Tutorial quote: This guide is for setting up a Subversion (SVN) repository in Ubuntu. Subversion is a version control system which enables multiple users to modify the same document. Therefore, a tool such as Subversion comes in really handy when developing software on a team. Also, Subversion can be a life saver when you need to revert back to older versions of a document (e.g. you made some changes to your code and now everything is broken).

Linux Setting Up A Subversion Repository Using Apache, With Auto Updatable Working Copy
Post date: June 18, 2007, 21:06 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 889 Comments: 0
Tutorial quote: Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That is, Subversion manages files and directories over time. A tree of files is placed into a central repository. The repository is much like an ordinary file server, except that it remembers every change ever made to your files and directories. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of time machine.
