     5[wiki:"Subversion"] (SVN) is a [wiki:"What is Source Code Management?" source code management] tool.  In order to retrieve data from a Subversion repository, you need a Subversion client.  The official [wiki:"Subversion"] client is available for most Operating Systems, including Windows, Linux, BSD and Mac OS X.  The official SVN client is a text-based command-line tool.  Windows users may alternately use the [wiki:"TortoiseSVN"] client, which is GUI-based.

    6 SVN provides a native client for most operating systems (Windows, Linux, BSD and MacOS X are supported, among others).

    8 SVN, Subversion, is a centralized Revision Control System (RCS). SourceForge.net provides SVN service to all hosted projects. In order to access our SVN service, you will need to install a SVN client. SVN allows developers to keep a historical record of changes made to their source code tree. It also allows multiple developers to work on a single set of files at the same time without accidentally overwriting changes made by others. 
     7The official Subversion client is included with Linux and BSD.  [http://subversion.tigris.org/ Binaries for other platforms are available from the Subversion team.]

    14 The native SVN client provides a mechanism to modify and work with a SVN repository on a number of platforms. It is matched with the SVN server, which virtually guarantees complete compatibility with the SVN server. It has a slightly higher learning curve than graphical SVN clients, but with the added learning curve comes the ability to script operations. It also provides more power and control over the SVN operations. For those who don't need the extra power, we would recommend that you consider using TortoiseSVN under the Microsoft Windows operating system.
