This is how you normally do it. I work at Bamberg University and keep *all* my
professional and private documents (lecture notes, slides, diploma thesis,
dissertation, scientific papers, source code, you name it) in subversion. It
is easy, fast, reliable, and secure (if setup via svn+ssh and private keys or
using a SSL-enabled web server).
