A Guided Tour of Subversion (SVN)


Show Log to examine all the changes done today.


And that's all. Today, we have imported project, edited the files, created branch, worked in branch and merged it back to the trunk. It was only the overview of basic operations, we avoided more complex use cases (like conflict resolution) and we also did present only one way to perform each task. However, this initial walk thought should give you the overall feeling of how things work and also the basis to explore the other commands and the options of the commands we have already used.

This is the end of the Part 3 of Subversion series. The next (and last) part will focus on process of migration from other Version Control System to Subversion and also will give some hints for adopting Subversion into the development process.
