and now i am about to make some sort of evolution because I no longer find a lot of stuff I do neat, cool, and/or part of figuring it out. I cannot tolerate the mess and hassle. So I am learning this to get the crap out of the way. 4 years ago
I spent a long time trying to figure this out with GUI tools and the command line, but if you are on a Mac I just reccomend getting Textmate or something like that makes it really easy.

SVN is a fantastic tool, and is very easy to use and get used to. I’m with kronn in that I’ve not mastered it, but I know that takes time. I’ll be using and teaching SVN at my work now so I’ll have plenty of face time with it.
Hoorah for SVN!

I set up several repostories, configured three servers to handle them, installed clients on every major OS and convinced others to use it (and love it).
Time to check it off. Someday, “Master SVN” will be a goal, but for now, it’s time to say “great tool, use it!”... 6 years ago
What do you guys do for a public repository? I can’t host it on my server just yet (working on getting that all set up), so I’ve been looking for a place in the mean time. Thus far, I’ve only found https://canvas.bountysource.com/svn/, but I’d like to know if you folks have found anything promising.

I don’t want to say that I’ve really 100% learned SVN, but I can honestly use it comfortably with my projects with very little effort. I’ve been setting up public repositories (with Apache2 and WebDAV, et al) and that’s been stretching, particularly with authentication and keys (though in a good way).
I’ve been developing a simple blog with my new web application development framework (called Canvas) and have been using SVN to keep track of it. (140 revisions in two days for one developer. Not bad, I think.)
I’ll be moving my framework code over solely to SVN, which will open up doors to community participation as well. (Hopefully.) I think my productivity will only continue to increase with Subversion.
So far, I’m loving it.

I used the pragmatic programmers book and learnt all the commands from there, but the trick really is to use it – that’s the only way to make the commands become habit. 7 years ago
I use this for all my personal and group projects! it is a great versioning tool and I highly recommend everyone learn it. 7 years ago
After some quite easy beginning on my local machine with me as only user, I wanted to set up Subversion on the server at work.
Everything worked fine, until I tried to import the directory structure as first commit. I could access the repository but not write to it.

- On windows, TortoiseSVN is a superb svn client.
- commandline access ist easy, too.
- svnbook.red-bean.com is the best source of information.
I think it’ll take a month to learn about every detail, but it works like a charm since day one! 7 years ago
I would like a snappy motto to help me with Subversion – something like:
Check for modifications
Any ideas? Like an aide-memoire for new Subversion developers
Thanks very much 7 years ago
I’m using it for all my personal development and data. I’d love to convince my team to move off VSS. 7 years ago
have it running on my mac and pc, setup a server on my linux box, but now i think it’s time to get the book. 7 years ago
I’m not going to say that I’ve totally learned Subversion now, but I’m using it every day that I code, so I’ll count that as on an inescapable path to fully learning it and check the goal off as done.
I think I should’ve made the goal “start using version control consistently” instead, because that was what I was really after instead of subversion specifically (don’t get me wrong, svn is great, but it’s too specific a goal). 7 years ago
I’ve gotten a few chapters in on the Pragmatic Programmer’s book on Subversion and I’m pleased to say that I’m well on my way to achieving the goal.
Version Control is a heck of a lot simpler than I thought it was. 7 years ago
First off, apologies if you’re initials are SVN, next, svn is easy to learn, install, configure, and use. The config of apache and/or ssh (for svn+ssh) is a bit of a pain, but bearable. What’s life without some challenges? 8 years ago
