SVN 6 Months In


After 6 months daily use of SVN – Subversion and being part of a team of 8 developers I can clearly see the benefit of using a software version control system. I can’t imagine how hard it would be to keep track of what’s going on if still using ftp.

A few simple commands and you can pull in other peoples changes to your machine or commit your own :

# svn update (downloads any updates made in the repository)
# svn commit (commits and uploads your local changes to the repository)
# svn info (gives you information about the repository)
# svn stat -u (shows you local and repository changes)
