Appendix A. Subversion Quick-Start Guide

If you're eager to get Subversion up and running (and you enjoy learning by experimentation), this chapter will show you how to create a repository, import code, and then check it back out again as a working copy. Along the way, we give links to the relevant chapters of this book.


If you're new to the entire concept of version control or to the “copy-modify-merge” model used by both CVS and Subversion, then you should read Chapter 1, Fundamental Concepts before going any further.
