Managing Software Projects Like a Boss with Subversion and Trac
If you create software for a living, your source code is your most valuable asset. If you are not taking adequate steps to protect your source code, disaster could be just around the corner. The best way to protect the integrity of your source code is to use a version control system such as Subversion.
Once you have your source code being managed by a version control system, you can make use of another tool to greatly enhance your efficiency, reliability and code quality. I am referring to a ticket tracking system, such as Trac.
The purpose of this ebook is to help you set up a subversion and trac server. In addition, it will teach a set of best practices about how to use these two tools effectively and professionally. The level of this ebook is aimed at Noobs. I assume you don’t have any previous experience with subversion, trac, or setting up web servers. I will try to explain not only the hows, but the whys behind each step.
