I am an out-of-work tech writer, trying to keep up with technology. As such, I’d like to learn to use Subversion. My plan is to create some OpenOffice Writer files as documentation (user guide and programmer guide), then use Subversion to walk the files through at least one “release cycle”.
I have the following questions: 1. Does Subversion handle binary files the same as text files? 2. Should I create a separate repository for each document? 3. Since I’ll be using just a single computer, where should I install the server?
I’m sure I’ll develop other questions, which I’ll post as necessary.
Thanks for your help.
