RE: Docs for newbies

JEM,

I have good experience with TortoiseSVN, which is a GUI for Subversion.
( http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ ), Windows only though.

They have pretty good documentation also, chapter 5 of their help file is
the
Daily Use guide, which explains the main principles of using Subversion with
screenshots of the TortoiseSVN GUI.

Unrelated to Subversion you might want to check Eric Sink's weblog. Eric is
developer ( and founder? ) at Vault ( another SCM ) and has started a nice
tutorial about source control and its best practices. You can find it at:
http://software.ericsink.com/scm/source_control.html

regards,

Lieven.

Subject: Docs for newbies

Once now and then I write some documents together with different people,
usually we are in different locations and more than two people. We often use
LaTeX so subversion would be the ideal tool for making this work easier, now
we usually share by sending emails with attachments.

The problem seems to be that I'm usually the only one that has any
experience with version control systems and when I suggest that we should
use one it usually ends up with "ohhh, it sounds so complicated and we don't
have to time to learn about version control". Sigh ...

Anyway, I'm looking for a newbie tutorial that describes the principles of
version control, together with some instructions of how to use it (no fancy
stuff, just basic updating etc) hopefully using some kind of GUI client.
Preferable for Windows, OS X and Linux.

Does such a tutorial exists (note they are computer scientists, researchers
in other areas than programming/software engineering, but are not used to
use version control) ?
