Helpful tip

December 1st, 2005

This is mostly so I can keep track of this link, but it’s a great tip for anyone. If you don’t know what version control means, please research it. It’s something everybody should at least know about.
Lately, I’ve been real interested in backing up some important data. Some of it I would like to have available for multiple machines too. But I couldn’t figure out how to add some of the files in my home directory to a subversion repository without first importing the data, then checking it out again. However, I did find this link in the subversion FAQ. So I easily created a jax directory to a repository, and now I’m adding dot files and directories that I can easily get back if something happens. This is also great for tracking changes.
