Great, I'll make sure I check out that ericsink.com site. I have read
some of the SVN Book.
I just don't get fully how it pertains to the .Net Environment
Can someone who does .net work explain kind of the timeline of it?
As it seems to me this is what you have to do. Let's say I have Project1
in a repository.
To work on Project1 in .net, it seems to me I need to have all the
project1 files on my computer.
So I check out all files in Project1 and it will copy it down to my
computer. If I have a version of project1 already on my computer, it
will update it and only copy down from the server what it needs to sync
I then can make changes, compile, debug. .Net will change some files in
the /bin directory during a compile. When i'm done, I check back in and
it will update any files that have changed?
So from what I understand I have to Check Out All project files so I can
work on them, which one project could be a TON of files. But to compile
it i have to have those files.
You can see i'm a little confused.
But i'll check out the ericsink site to see if I can get a better grasp
Thanks for your help!

I think Eric Sink's source control HOWTO is a really great way to get
started. Although it is about source control in general and not
specifically Subversion the same concepts apply. The chapter on
repositories is, in my opinion, the clearest explanation of what a
repository is and how it functions.
Of course, if you haven't already taken a look at the Subversion book
you'll want to do that as well.

Subject: Subversion Beginner - General Overview - Multiple Users
Hi Everyone. I've been a programmer for a while now and I've recently
needed at an increasing rate version control on my projects. After some
research i've decided on Subversion. But I have a few general questions
about the whole thing.
Currently have I have a .net project on my local computer, and that is
where it stays. No one else can work on it but me, and occasionally I
back it up.
If I set up a subversion server were multiple developers are accessing
it for their projects, including me, how exactly does this work?
If I have the whole project with code on the server, does it get copied
down to my local computer when I check it out. I can then work on it,
and check back in the whole project? Does it then copy back up any
Do I keep my local copy of the project or do I always download
everything from the server.
These may sound like stupid questions but i'm just trying to grasp how
this works. Thanks for all your help
