|Description:||Subversion - Client (1.4.4-11)|
The goal of the Subversion project is to build a version control system that is a compelling replacement for CVS in the open source community. Subversion's Features: - Most current CVS features - Directories, renames, and file meta-data are versioned - Commits are truly atomic - Branching and tagging are cheap (constant time) operations - Client/server protocol sends diffs in both directions - Time costs are proportional to change size, not data size - Efficient handling of binary files - it uses a binary diffing algorithm to transmit and store successive revisions - Versioning of symbolic links - Choice of database or plain-file repository implementations - Apache network server option, with WebDAV/DeltaV protocol - Standalone server option Subversion is broken into these packages in fink: - The "svn-client" package installs a command-line client program for using subversion. Type 'fink describe svn-client' to get usage help. - The "svn" package installs a stand-alone server 'svnserve'. Install this package if you want to maintain a stand-alone server. Type 'fink describe svn' to get usage help. - The "svn-doc" package installs html documentation, and notes from the developers of svn. - The "libapache2-mod-svn" package contains an apache2 module to enable serving a repository via web-dav. Type 'fink describe libapache2-mod-svn' to get usage help. - The "svn-shlibs" package contains the shared libraries for the other packages. It is installed automatically by fink when needed. - The "svn-dev" package contains the development headers and libraries. It is installed automatically by fink when needed. - The "svn-swig-pm586" package contains the swig perl bindings to call svn from perl. Type 'fink describe svn-swig-pm586' to get usage help. - The "svn-swig-py24" package contains the swig python bindings to call svn from python. Type 'fink describe svn-swig-py24' to get usage help. - The "svn-swig-rb18" package contains the swig ruby bindings to call svn from ruby. Type 'fink describe svn-swig-rb18' to get usage help. - The "svn-javahl" package contains the java bindings to call svn from java. Type 'fink describe svn-javahl' to get usage help. For More Information, check the main Subversion website below and read the book at <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/>. Also check out the documentation in /sw/share/doc/svn. These files are in the "svn-doc" package.
