A nice tutorial on using subversion for version control: Subversion mini tutorial | Jan Erik Moström
I have never used a formal version control system for manuscripts, replying instead on the ‘ms_v1, ms_v1.1, ms_v2, …, ms_accepted’ type system. But errors always creep in, and I have had some close calls. Right now, we email versions back and forth, causing me to use my email system like a file cabinet.
Perhaps a more formal system will help. We’ll see.
