       svn command [options] [args]

       Subversion is a version control system, which allows you to keep old
       versions of files and directories (usually source code), keep a log of
       who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like CVS, RCS or SCCS.
       Subversion keeps a single copy of the master sources.  This copy is
       called the source ``repository''; it contains all the information to
       permit extracting previous versions of those files at any time.
