Apache Subversion, also known as svn, is a centralised version control
system.  Version control systems allow many individuals (who may be
distributed geographically) to collaborate on a set of files (source
code, websites, etc).  Subversion began with a CVS paradigm and
supports all the major features of CVS, but has evolved to support
many features that CVS users often wish they had.
This package includes the Subversion client (svn), repository
administration tools (svnadmin, svnlook) and a network server (svnserve).
