One of the greatest frustrations in most software projects is version control: the art of managing changes to information. Today's increasingly fast pace of software development--as programmers make small changes to software one day only to undo them the next--has only heightened the problem; consecutive work on code or single-programmer software is a rare sight these days. Without careful attention to version control, concurrent and collaborative work can create more headaches than it solves. This is where Subversion comes into play. Written by members of the Subversion open source development team, "Version Control with Subversion" introduces the powerful new versioning tool designed to be the successor to the Concurrent Version System or CVS. CVS users will find the "look and feel" Subversion comfortably familiar, but under the surface it's far more flexible, robust, and usable, and more importantly, it improves on CVS's more notable flaws.

This manual describes how to use CVS, a powerful version control system. CVS tracks changes to source code and documents, allowing previous versions to be recovered at any time. CVS is free software, distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL.

Version control is used to track and manage changes. In our case, CVS version control is used to track any changes made to our web sites, whether it's a single edit of one file to fix a typo, or a series of adjustments where several files are added.
