Subversion - Source Code Version Control

Source Code Version Control systems maintain revision history as files change over time. It also allows multiple users to work on the same text file simultaneously, merging changes automatically. Files are stored in a repository and grouped by modules. AITS used Subversion to manage this service. Subversion stores information about and allows reversion to any previous state of any file in the repository.

Features of Subversion

  • Organized in a typical directory tree structure.
  • Allows multiple users to work on the same file simultaneously, merging changes automatically.

  • Stores information about and allows reversion to any previous state of any checked-in file.
