Re: installing SVN after development has started

Well I think it's fairly simple, just install subversion create the
environment to host a new repository (create your trunk, branches and
tags) do a checkout of that repository so you will grab an empty
working copy, after this copy all the files from the first set (to me
doesn't make much sense) and add these files to the repo 'svn add'
then commit to the repo 'svn ci' after this overwrite the first set of
files of your working copy with the second set of files (the newest
ones) and commit the changes and add the new files if any 'svn st' is
a command to see the status of the files in the working copy, tyr 'svn
help <command>' very handy.

You can so this using branches and then merging but try this only if
you want to complicate your life, result will be the same.

Hope this helps, good luck!
