Acknowledgments

This book would not be possible (nor very useful) if SVK did not exist. For that, the authors would like to thank Chia-liang Kao for having the vision of writing an Open Source version control system with the power, speed and interoperability that SVK has.

In addition this book wouldn't have existed, or at least would have taken much longer to write if it wasn't for the Subversion book written by Ben Collins-Sussman, Brian W. Fitzpatrick and C. Michael Pilato

The original book on which this book is based is titled Version Control With Subversion and is Copyright 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 by Ben Collins-Sussman, Brian W. Fitzpatrick and C. Michael Pilato

We would also like to thank the countless people who contributed to the SVK book with reviews, suggestions and fixes: While this is undoubtedly not a complete list, this book would be incomplete and incorrect without the help of: Gary Hoo, Jesse Vincent, Michael Hendricks, Chris Russo and the entire SVK community.

Finally we would like to thank the countless people who contributed to the original subversion book with informal reviews, suggestions, and fixes: While this is undoubtedly not a complete list, this book would be incomplete and incorrect without the help of: Jani Averbach, Ryan Barrett, Francois Beausoleil, Jennifer Bevan, Matt Blais, Zack Brown, Martin Buchholz, Brane Cibej, John R.

Thanks to my girlfriend Laura for putting up with me staying up until late at night and getting up at 6am and to work on the book.
