hello there,
i have been wanting to get started with subversion. The problem is, i cannot seem to find a good tutorial about how to get started. Everything i find seems to assume i already know the terminology ( checkout & such ) or that i am migrating from csv.
Does anyone know a good newbie tutorial on starting to implement a revision control system for a couple of projects that i want to use this for ?

thanks

Hi there,

check this subversion HOWTO (http://developer.berlios.de/docman/display_doc.php?docid=394&group_id=2#checkssh/), maybe it can help a bit.

Perhaps this link (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/) is even better.

I myself plan on trying out subversion soonish.

Let us know how it went or if you find any better docs.

cheers

Hi, have you tried the book Version Control with Subversion? There's a free online edition here (http://svnbook.red-bean.com/index.en.html). It's a bit dense, but it has all you have to know. Then, this cheatsheet (http://www.abbeyworkshop.com/howto/misc/svn01/) may be useful.

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ is IMHO very good book - and you can even buy it! It has a chapter showing how to use different SVN commands during typical program tasks.

If I have problems understanding basic terminology, wikipedia helps me to get back on track. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Version_control article has good glossary of basic terms.

You can also get help in the #svn IRC channel.
