Subversion is a better version of CVS.

A simple local setup:

$ wajig update
$ wajig install subversion
$ sudo mkdir /var/svn
$ sudo chgrp -R staff /var/svn
$ sudo chmod -R g+w /var/svn
$ svnadmin create /var/svn/myproject
$ mkdir TEMP
$ echo "Test SVN" > TEMP/simple.txt
$ svn import -m "Initial import" TEMP file:///var/svn/myproject/trunk
$ svn co file:///var/svn/myproject/trunk
$ svnlook tree /var/svn/myproject

Should not run subversion to a file:/// using NFS. Instead, run the svnserver and connect there:

belinos$ svnserver -d

ganesha$ svn co svn://belinos/var/svn/myproject/trunk

Hmm. This gives authorization errors on commit! Not quite there yet!
