Subversion is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions of files and directories (usually source code of some flavor), keep a log of who, when, and why changes occurred, and so forth much like CVS, RCS or SCCS.

Subversion keeps a single copy of the master sources. This copy is called the source repository. It contains all the information to permit extracting previous versions of those files at any time. For a listing of feature see
