Versoning functionality: Subversion

From: Grant Bowman (
Date: Tue Apr 03 2001 - 17:01:33 PDT

Subversion mentioned below is an interesting re-implementation of
version control, expanding CVS. Concurrent Version System is a
preferred tool in the open source community. I expect the SV-LUG
meeting to be interesting as well.

We're pleased to announce the next meeting of SVLUG, this coming Wednesday.

NOTE: If you have an announcement to make before the meeting, you *must* send it in advance to Don Marti,



WHO: Subversion <> Karl Fogel, CollabNet Greg Stein, developer

ABOUT WHAT: How Subversion picks up where CVS left off, and implications for Linux specifically -- such as, using Subversion to create a Linux version of the BSD "ports tree" package distribution mechanism. :-)

WHEN: Wednesday 4 April 7pm-9pm or so.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: Karl Fogel is a a software collaboration specialist with CollabNet. Greg Stein is a non-employed Open Source software developer, spending his time with Subversion, Apache, WebDAV, and Python.

WHERE: Cisco Building 9. The land of NUMBERS. The VINEYARDS conference center. The side we are on is the Silver Oak/Jordan conference rooms, where a large Cisco fountain is usually not turned on. Directions on how to get there are listed at: *** use this if you encounter DNS problems reaching it *** We've tried our very best for these directions to be accurate. If you have any improvements to make, please let our Web Team know!

NOTES: It's best if you arrive close to on time, as otherwise there may not be someone posted at the door to let you in. After the speakers end their presentation there is usually a Q&A session, time for job seekers and employers to meet, and often a few door prizes. When the meeting is over people are encouraged to chat a bit, but also to exit the building so Cisco can lock up. Don't worry, a lot of us go to dinner afterward so there's plenty of time to chat outdoors or offsite.

We look forward to seeing you there! --

Tom Geller * San Francisco *,,, Speaker Coordinator, Silicon Valley Linux Users Group (
