AW: file by file revision

Hi,

maybe you should not think in revisions, but releaeses,
once you start using subversion (for nearly everything :-)
you probably get to a "commit often, release when it works" work cycle.

So the 2. Version of a document could be the outcome of the changes of
revision 3, 7 and 9.

I allways think that a release of a project is
the project in some sort of working state.
Each new release can fix bugs, or add new features.
(projects are rarely really done (even those in produktion)9

For the releaes you can use the cheap copies of subversion,
see the subversion book for a "good" project layout.
(see chapter 5, choosing a repository layout)

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / With kind regards

Huibert Alblas
