What is Bazaar? Bazaar is a version control system that helps you track project history over time and to collaborate easily with others. Whether you're a single developer, a co-located team or a community of developers scattered across the world, Bazaar scales and adapts to meet your needs. Part of the GNU Project, Bazaar is free software sponsored by Canonical. For a closer look, see ten reasons to switch to Bazaar. Extras


Intro to Distributed Version Control (Illustrated) Traditional version control helps you backup, track and synchronize files. Distributed version control makes it easy to share changes. Done right, you can get the best of both worlds: simple merging and centralized releases. Distributed? Toward Saner Version Control Anyone who has worked on a software project with a team of people knows how difficult the coordination of efforts can be. Students of Fred Brooks' The Mythical Man Month, or people who understand it implicitly by virtue of their experiences in the work place, are well aware of this. Intelligence, quite simply, does not scale. The number of communication channels for a team grows with the square of the number of participants, and presumably the efficiency of such a team shrinks with a corresponding inverse relationship. To keep things from grinding to a halt, good tools must be at one's behest. Among these tools, a good source code management tool must reside on a developer's belt.

You’ll follow these steps: Do work on a web site. Create a branch for a new story you’re working on. Do some work in that branch.

A Subversion tutorial Introduction An important element of the modern software development process is source control (or version control). Cooperating developers commit their changes incrementally to a common source repository, which allows them to collaborate on code without resorting to crude file-sharing techniques (shared drives, email). Source control tools track all prior versions of all files, allowing developers to "time travel" backward and forward in their software to determine when and where bugs are introduced. These tools also identify conflicting simultaneous modfications made by two (poorly-communicating) team members, forcing them to work out the correct solution (rather than blindly overwriting one or the other original submission). In this course we will make available a Subversion repository for your use.
