Git vs. SVN

You are planning to migrate your version control system to an up-to-date open source tool. The currently prevailing systems are Git, which is based on a distributed architecture, and Subversion featuring a central repository.

Professional Article "Git oder Subversion" published in Screenquide No. 18, 06/2013, titled "Git oder Subversion? - Erfahren Sie, welche Versionskontrolle die bessere für Sie ist" (Author: Neels Hofmeyr)

Subversion has replaced its predecessor CVS because it simply is better at providing centralized version control. Then, along came Git: ingenious, open and distributed. Git is increasingly present even in big software houses and has become far more than just the new kid on the block. But is Git really better than Subversion? Several basic differences between the tools indicate that Subversion will not share the fate of its predecessor.

Professional Article "Neues in Subversion 1.7" published in the entwickler magazin 05/2011, titled "Sommer - Sonne - Subversion" (Author: Neels Hofmeyr)

Version 1.6 of the popular version control tool Apache Subversion was released more than two years ago. In the meantime the requirements of professional software development have changed rapidly and the demands on capabilities and efficiency of version control tools have risen.

The Subversion developers are facing the expectations on a system which has been adopted by many commercial software developers-

Subversion is now on final preparation for release 1.7. SVN committer Neels Hofmeyr outlines the innovations and expected improvements in the article (In German)

Professional Article "Neues in Subversion 1.6" published in entwickler magazin 04/2009 (Authors: Neels Hofmeyr, Stefan Sperling, Stephen Butler)

The Subversion project, which was started in the year 2000, has long ago outgrown the initial goal to be a better CVS. Subversion has since matured to a professional software configuration management tool. It is being adopted by large international organizations and is increasingly superseeding commercial systems.

SVNDay 2012 Talk: "Moves and Renames in Apache Subversion 1.8"

Apache Subversion represents moves of files and directories as two separate events - a copy event, and a delete event. These events are always processed separately, which usually works fine, except when a move is involved in a tree conflict. Subversion 1.7 is lacking facilities to help users deal with such conflicts, which is a major usability problem. This talk shows how handling of moves has been improved for Subversion 1.8.

Subconf 2007 Talk: "Migration from CM Synergy to SVN at UBS"

The UBS Wealth Management & Business Banking unit migrated its internal software development projects from the CM Synergy (formerly Continuus) change management system to Subversion. In this talk, we present organizational and technical aspects of the migration project. We show how existing development processes were adapted and how user acceptance for the new system was achieved. Furthermore, we discuss the technical challenges involved in the migration of a large number of CM Synergy repositories to Subversion.

White Paper "Git versus Subversion - Which Tool is Appropriate?"

From the wide range of available version control tools, two rivals are emerging noticeably: Subversion and Git. Both are free of charge, both enable large software development teams for parallel development of several development lines. They are both able to branch and merge, solve conflicts and record the development history of the source code version by version. They seem to provide the same functionality, hence the choice between Git and Subversion is often not easy.

Nevertheless, Git and Subversion are not similar at all! A close look unveils that these version control systems have completely different structures.
