Speaker: Paul Wayper
Source Control using Subversion.
Although source control is a great thing, a lot of us
still don't use it as much as we should. For some,
using subversion may be limited to checking out the
latest MPlayer or MythTV code. And we often worry that
source control is difficult - it takes too much time, it
involves lots of fiddly commands, and it still ends up
with confusion and drama.
This talk is aimed at teaching you the basics of using
Subversion to manage your own source code. I'll start
by showing you how to set up a Subversion server and
sample repository. Then you can use my own 'test'
repository to look at checking out source code, working
with it, and committing your changes. We'll also look
at code branches and cross-committing. If there's time
we'll cover working with others, and what to do if
someone else's revision conflicts with your work.
You'll be able to follow along on your own machine as
well as watch the presentation on the projector.
