This is the first time I have heard about Subversion but I am excited to know more, I have already started reading the book and have installed it to experiment with.

It seems promising but when I asked one of my Perl Guru friends here is what he has to say:


I was under the impression that bitkeeper was better: 


but I think either of three works fine.  Versioning is over-rated and should be transparent.

What do you guys think about subversion?

Frankly, I didn't know it even existed before the following email.

I would love to see what you guys think about it and will it really replace CVS one day (may be it is already doing so).

There is a link to an ongoing book on subversion at the end of the email.

Waiting, to hear from you.



May be this is food for thought while you prepare the presentation.

I have already voted for Subversion and plan to be there.

I *finally* got in to using Subversion (svn) a couple days ago. I
converted a bunch of CVS repositories to SVN and last night I read through
about half of the "Version Control with Subversion" book[1] (the hardcopy
version). It's a thing of beauty. I finally got through my head what I
thought I understood already about branching and tagging in Subversion
too. Pure simplicity.

Would there be an audience at the 19 April SPUG meeting for a presentation
on converting from CVS to SVN and using Subversion?

Don't answer my question here. Please vote at the poll:
