     1= Quick SVN Howto = 
     3''SVN is a source code management and revision control system. It provides a centralized repository for developers to commit their code into, and for users to check the code out from. SVN keeps a complete history of the development process, which means that changes can easily be tracked and revoked if necessary.'' 
     5== Some SVN commands == 
     6Here are a few SVN commands that might be of interest: 
     8$ svn checkout mysrcdir <-- perform an initial check-out and create a local copy 
     9$ cd mysrcdir 
     10$ svn update                                    <-- update the local copy 
     11$ svn update --revision NNNN                    <-- get a specific (older) revision, useful to track down bugs 
     12$ svn info                                      <-- display revision number of the local copy 
     13$ svn status                                    <-- display status information for each file in the local copy 
     16Developers and interested power-users might want to have a look at the excellent [ subversion book] and the  
     17[ subversion homepage]. 
     19== Web browser access == 
     20Subversion servers provide HTTP access via port 80. This is very handy to get a quick overview: if you want to see what's available in the SVN repository, just point your browser to and have a look around.
