While a beginner, I have been programming for a little while now and the time came for me to put my code into a repository. I was dreading it.

"version control with subversion" gently and quickly took me into using Subversion. I needed to read the first few chapters twice, after that I downloaded and installed the code, and viola, my code is version controlled with minimal effort.

Subversion linked readily with my IDE, Netbeans, although subversion with different IDEs is not really covered in this book.

Thanks to this book, I did not have take my mind of my main project for long.

I read the rest of the book (skim reading some sections) and it provides clear instructions on other possibilities, and how to set up more complex and tailored systems.

A good read, presenting good knowledge, and good instruction.

My evidence is that I am now using Subversion well, whereas two weeks ago I had no clue.

Although I had used other code repositories in the past, such as CVS and GIT, I needed to Subversion quickly for a new job. This book is organized to accomplish exactly what I needed. It starts with comparing the basic commands to other types of code repositories. More complex topics about how Subversion works are reserved for later chapters. This is an excellent guide to Subversion.

This book is both an excellent way to learn Subversion from scratch and an invaluable reference guide to experienced users. The material in this book is on par with (and often better than) the material available in corporate "live, instructor-led" training courses. This book covers everything from the high-level, conceptual view of Subversion to command-line usage details to the low-level internal workings of the Subversion code. Best of all, the book is easy to read and the authors use just the right amount of diagrams and flow charts (enough to clear up any questions, but not so many as to be overwhelming or distracting). I can't imagine working on a Subversion-powered project without this book. Highly recommended

Essential book when I was getting up to speed. But somewhat confusing about merging and branching details.

I have been using CVS and SVN for more than 10 years. The enhanced merge feature in SVN 1.5 is a much needed capability. This book does a good job of describing branching and merging, what is really happening in SVN, and how to use SVN properly to meet our branching needs. That said, if you are doing multi-site, mostly independent multi-developer software development and haven't implemented a SCM system, I suggest you use GIT.

Great book for using and administrating Subversion. Typical ore illy book layout. Some of the constructs could be linked together in a logical process flow

spend too much effort on the history of CVS and SVN, which I would expected more discussion on the implementation and integration with modern development tools like Elipse and Maven
