Recommends it for: version control aficionados
Shelves: technical, 2007
Got through about half of it; did the core exercises for setting up and working with SVN. Didn't really get too deep into the more advanced stuff; my work (at work) isn't technical enough to require that knowledge and my personal projects weren't going to "go there" either.

I found the book clear enough to get the specifics across; I think it assumes a working knowledge of version control concepts though. (That said, it makes a token effort at giving the "high-level overview" for version control

Great book for learning and implementing subversion quickly. Lots of clear examples of how to set up repositories, users and the various forms of repository sharing. It was perfect for my learning needs and I continue to use it as a reference.

I needed to get up-to-speed on SVN quickly and this book was exactly what I needed. It is well organized and proceeds though views from an end user making small changes, all the way through things a repository administrator would need to know.
This book very useful to people of widely different backgrounds—from people with no previous experience in version control to experienced system administrators. Depending on our background, certain chapters may be more or less important to you.

THE book to read if you need to polish off your svn skills. Concerns about branching, merging and strategies for both will be a thing of the past

Gute Einführung, viele gut erklärte Informationen - wie bspw. die Tatsache, das Eigenschaften nicht versioniert werden - und praktischer Referenzteil.

Hatte ich 2006 schon einmal gelesen.

Great information on how to use Subversion. Not so much on how to set it up. Overall, extremely helpful
