Using SVK

Published on Thursday, March 8, 2007

I came across some articles that describe SVK as a better version control system, than say SVN.

svk is a decentralized version control system built with the robust Subversion filesystem. It supports repository mirroring, disconnected operation, history-sensitive merging, and integrates with other version control systems, as well as popular visual merge tools.

I already have an SVN server running at my home PC, and I am quite happy with the 'Tortoise SVN' client. I came across SVK, when I was researching the possibility of maintaining an SVN mirror repository - especially useful if your SVN repository is hosted on a remote server.

I will be documenting my experience with this, but if you have any comments, please do share...
