What is a version control system? A version control system allows you to track the history of a collection of files and includes the functionality to revert the collection of files to another version. Each version captures a snapshot of the files at a certain point in time. The collection of files is usually source code for a programming language but a typical version control system can put any type of file under version control. The collection of files and their complete history are stored in a repository. The process of creating different versions (snapshots) in the repository is depicted in the following graphic.
