I have had the Subversion Book on preorder with Amazon for a
while. Just a couple of questions. Firstly, what revision (in the
repository sense) does the book correspond to? Roughly how long would
you estimate it will take before the book becomes too obsolete to be
useful? Six months, 1 yr... I suppose you plan to bring out new
editions of the Book periodically.
Part of the reason I bought the book is that I am trying to get the
small research group I work in to use version control and specifically
Subversion. So I figure that flashing a shiny new O'Reilly paperback
will do no harm.:-)
