What is Subversion?

From the free book about Subversion:

"Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That is, Subversion manages files and directories over time. A tree of files is placed into a central repository. The repository is much like an ordinary file server, except that it remembers every change ever made to your files and directories. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of “time machine”."

The Punchscan project is divided into several different software components depending on their function. Subversion Repositories for the development versions are available at the following locations:
