  Revision control - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Revision control (also known as version control) is the management of multiple revisions of the same unit of information.
Traditionally, revision control systems have used a centralized model, where all the revision control functions are performed on a shared server.
One of the leading proponents of distributed revision control is Linus Torvalds, developer of the Linux kernel.

 Revision Control System manpage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A range of the form rev1:rev2 means revisions rev1 to rev2 on the same branch, :rev means from the beginning of the branch containing rev up to and including rev, and rev: means from revision rev to the end of the branch containing rev. None of the outdated revisions can have branches or locks.
The RCS pathname and the revisions outdated are written to the diagnostic output.
The separator for revision ranges in the -o option used to be - instead of :, but this leads to confusion when symbolic names contain -.

 np237: On distributed revision control systems   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Distributed revision control is a useful tool, but no one's yet demonstrated how to use it sanely without keeping a centralized development process, negating most of its supposed benefits (really, all you keep is offline operation).
One technical way to skirt around this is to use a centralised revision control system (either nominate one central branch which everyone can merge to as the branch, or use CVS/SVN/whatever), but eventually the lack of any visible leader will come to bite you on the butt.
You provide an extremely weak argument against "distributed" revision control (how exactly are they not distributed); having to rely on slanderous generalizations such as "shit" or "complete mess".

 Linux Development Tools: Tools - Revision Control   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
arch is a revision control system with features that are ideal for free software and open source projects characterized by widely distributed development, concurrent support of multiple releases, and substantial amounts of development on branches.
It has two particularly distinctive features which differ from other revision control systems: each copy of the source is a fully functional branch, and underlying it is a consistent and powerful theory of patches (the latter being darcs' most important feature).
PRCS (Project Revision Control System) is the front end to a set of tools that provide a way to deal with sets of files and directories as an entity, preserving coherent versions of the entire set.

Demonstrate essential revision control concepts, such as creating revisions, checking changes in and out of the system, how file changes are logically organized and how the systems can be used to easily move between file revisions.
Note that even though revision 1.7 is the descendant of 1.6, it doesn't contain the changes Arthur made, since the revision control system simply replaced 1.6 with 1.7.
When the project hits a milestone, you can either synchronize all of the file's revision numbers (bring them all to the same level, such as 1.7) or increase the major version number of the next revision (the next change for all of the files is checked in at 2.1).

 Palimpsest: A Data Model for Revision Control   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
By basing the fundamental structures of Palimpsest on the individual changes (or deltas) made to the shared data at a fine grain, a wide variety of revision management strategies can be represented, while the scope of possible conflicts is reduced to the smallest possible portion of the document.
A similar approach is the use of file difference algorithms to track the revision process as in [16].
The general idea of basing configuration or version control around changes to data rather than states of data has been suggested previously in the software engineering literature (see [12, 13]), but Palimpsest presents many significant differences from this work.

Revision Control System (RCS) incorporates a "smart" system of saving versions of code while under development so that an error can be recovered from any modified version of the software currently under version control.
Source control can allow you to specify what file revision you want to start with, and also how the revision of the file you're creating will relate to the ones that already exist.

 GNU arch -- a revision control system - Summary [Savannah]
GNU arch is a revision control system, similar in purpose to tools such as CVS, SCCS, and Subversion.
That means, for example, that I don't need to give you write access or special permission to create revision controlled changes to software I publish: you can just create your own archive for that, and treat it as an extension of mine.
Advanced users of revision control often make very heavy use of branching and merging features -- the design of arch attempts to provide the best possible support for that style of work.

 Detailed Change Control Procedure
Informal revision control refers to the use of tools which allow changes to a rapidly evolving work product to be sequentially captured and retraced, if necessary.
Revision control differs from change control in that it provides automated support for saving and restoring versions of project work products such as documents and computer source code without the burden of a formal change process.
Since change control at this stage of development is informal, it is the responsibility of each developer to use prudent judgment and professional practice to store revisions of the work product at appropriate intervals and to be diligent in maintaining master sources of the work product on the project file server.

The goal of the Subversion project is to build a version control system that is a compelling replacement for CVS in the open source community.
Revision numbers are per-commit, not per-file; log messages are attached to the revision, not stored redundantly as in CVS.
Subversion is equally efficient on binary as on text files, because it uses a binary diffing algorithm to transmit and store successive revisions.

 BitSCCS - SCCS compatible revision control system
Both RCS and SCCS have comands for viewing revision history, but these commands (rlog and prs) work on a file at a time, i.e., first all the informationfrom one file, then the next, etc. Sccslog sorts the changes by time across all files, which is a much more intuitive way to view the data.
User, revision, date, file name prefices - files may be viewed with any combination of the listed fields in front of each line in the file.
There is a SCCS file browser which displays a graphical view of the file's revision history and gives you a text widget in which you can see revision history log entries, diffs, or any version of the file.

In particular, it is impractical to compare several old revisions of a group, because that may require mounting and searching several tapes.

Introduction ------------ The Revision Control System (RCS) is an efficient method of managing text files that are frequently revised, such as papers or program source code.
The file that is being revised is known as the "working version", since it is being worked on.
On subsequent revisions, RCS prompts for a log message which summarizes the changes to the file.

 Applying RCS and SCCS: From Source Control to Project Control: Chapter 3: Basic Source Control Using RCS
Revision Control System, or RCS, was developed by Walter F. Tichy at Purdue University in the early 1980s.
It also uses the term "check-in" to refer to the addition of a new revision to an RCS file and "check-out" to refer to the retrieval of an existing revision from an RCS file.
Now that you have the lock, you have the exclusive right to change this revision (revision 1.1) of the file and eventually to check in your working file as the next revision of the RCS file.
