Version control for non-programmers with Subversion

Post date: June 9, 2005, 04:06 Category: Software Views: 2941 Comments
Tutorial quote: Imagine a utility that lets you make an annotated backup of any of your project files with the click of a mouse or a single command. It would let you review the history of your backups and recover any version you wished. And it would integrate with your file browser and would keep track of files that have changed since your last backup. The utility exists -- Subversion, and its companion program TortoiseSVN, can help you safely manage your files as you work with them.

How-To: Setup Subversion with Apache2 on Ubuntu

Post date: October 20, 2006, 20:10 Category: Installing Views: 4298 Comments
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).

Setting Up A Subversion Repository Using Apache, With Auto Updatable Working Copy

Post date: June 19, 2007, 02:06 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3070 Comments
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.

Keeping Your Life in Subversion

Post date: October 2, 2005, 16:10 Category: Software Views: 3315 Comments
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?

Using The Bazaar Version Control System (VCS) On Debian Etch

Post date: January 22, 2008, 11:01 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3219 Comments
Tutorial quote: Bazaar is a distributed version control system (VCS) available under the GPL; it is similar to Subversion (svn). Bazaar is sponsored by Canonical, Ltd., the company that develops the Ubuntu Linux distribution, and therefore the Ubuntu project is the most prominent user of Bazaar. This article explains how to set up and use Bazaar on a Debian Etch system, and how to configure an SFTP-/HTTP server to host your Bazaar repository.

Installing SVN with apache on debian

Post date: March 20, 2006, 20:03 Category: Software Views: 2920 Comments
Tutorial quote: Today I started to set up a SVN repository for our final year project. I tried to setup a SVN server using Apache2 so that the SVN repository is available to the client through the WebDAV/DeltaV protocol. Read on for a trial-and-error introduction.

The Version Control with Subversion book (by Ben Collins-Sussman, Brian W. Fitzpatrick & C. Michael Pilato) was very useful to me when I struggled with SVN. The e-version of the book also available for free.
