Description:O’Reilly is head and shoulders above the rest of the publishing industry. If they would get into the non-computer textbook biz, the world would be a better place and I would no longer need to maintain this site.

Here is O’Reilly’s free online edition of Version Control with Subversion, available in HTML or PDF or as source files. The book’s being translated into a number of other languages, too. Since I don’t know anything about subversion, here is what the authors have to say:

This book is written for computer-literate folk who want to use Subversion to manage their data. While Subversion runs on a number of different operating systems, its primary user interface is command-line based. It is that command-line tool (svn) which is discussed and used in this book. For consistency, the examples in this book assume the reader is using a Unix-like operating system, and is relatively comfortable with Unix and command-line interfaces.
Most readers are probably programmers or system administrators who need to track changes to source code. This is the most common use for Subversion, and therefore it is the scenario underlying all of the book’s examples. But Subversion can be used to manage changes to any sort of information: images, music, databases, documentation, and so on. To Subversion, all data is just data.
While this book is written with the assumption that the reader has never used version control, we’ve also tried to make it easy for users of CVS to make a painless leap into Subversion. Special sidebars may discuss CVS from time to time, and a special appendix summarizes most of the differences between CVS and Subversion.

Thanks to Stas Bekman for the submission.
