Introduction to Subversion

Subversion is a version control system that keeps track of changes made to files and folders (directories), facilitating data recovery, and providing a history of the changes that have been made over time. It can be used for research data as well as software.You have the opportunity to get access to a Subversion (SVN) server that will make Subversion available to you and your group.

If you are a student, be sure to know your group number before trying to access the SVN server. If you do not know the group number, ask the study secretary at your respective department.

In the sub pages to this page, you will find guides on the usage of the Windows Subversion client named TortoiseSVN.

Subversion is provided by IT Services at AAU, whose website contains guides for ordering and using the service.
