Changing from CVS to Subversion (SVN)

Post by JeffM » Wed Mar 28, 2007 6:11 am

We are changing the project source control system from CVS over to Subversion.

The CVS system is now read only, and will remain so.

to access the current source code you must use the source forge SVN system.

info on how to access the SVN system can be found here.

subversion tracks everything and sorts things by revisions and different releases, right? Or am I wrong?

I think you are mistaken or confused on what a Version Control System does.

SVN provides the data in a similar manner to CVS, there is a trunk folder that contains what was CVS head. There is a branches folder that contains all the older branch tags. In that way it's actually easier to get older tags as it's just a variation of the URL.

SVN nor CVS does any sort of sorting, they simply keep a history of all changes to files.

SVN does keep a repository version number that is incremented with each commit, but that does not affect the branches, files, or any kind of "sort" that I am aware of. For each file there is a history of changes, and what revision the each changes were commited in. This lets you see all the changes that were committed at together, since they have same revision number.
