latest svn book?

Lana Deere
Hi,

I am looking for the latest version of the subversion book.  The only version I seem able to find (at svnbook.org) says it is for svn 1.7 and has a copyright date of 2011.  I'm looking for a version which is up-to-date with respect to svn 1.9.  Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks!

There’s a 1.8 draft in the nightly build section of that page with a 2016 copyright that I’ve been using. 

 

It’s not available in PDF form yet, though.

Requests for a PDF version should be addressed to the book's mailing
list ([hidden email]).

I tried on two occasions to subscribe to that mailing list but there seemed to be no response. Does anyone know why or have contact with the book maintainers? It's a very good book. I still refer to it frequently. Bringing it up-to-date with 1.9 and current best practices would benefit all of us.

Also, some sections could be expanded. Just one example is how to deal with vendor branches. There was some recent discussion here about communication between the FreeBSD and Subversion maintainers, and some practices that could be updated by FreeBSD and/or improvements made to Subversion. The results of such discussions are exactly the sort of information that should be documented in the svn-book. I propose an additional chapter on real world scenarios and case studies, to help potential adopters and long-time users alike.

I've forwarded Nathan's report to svnbook-dev@ (and verified that my email
was in fact delivered to that list), so cmpilato et al should be aware of it now.
