Open Source Development with CVS, 3rd Edition

The complete Open Source Development with CVS, 3rd Edition is available under the GNU General Public License:

Thanks to Jan Wolff for transforming the original PDFs from Paraglyph Press into this more useable form. Jan consolidated Paraglyph's multiple files into a single file, and remove the cutting marks from around the page edges to make it more readable.

NOTE: There is an error in the copyright notice printed in the version of the book sold in bookstores. The entire book is available under the GNU General Public License — see here for details.

The electronic copy of the 3rd edition comes directly from the publisher's PDF files. Due to certain complexities of the publishing process, there are no source files from which the PDFs were generated. Therefore, I simply distribute the PDFs as masters; they serve as both source and binary format. I am no longer fixing bugs in the book, partly due to CVS's increasing obsolescence, and partly because I'm busy with other things these days. For a while I maintained an email address at which to receive bug reports about these web pages, but it became a spam magnet, so now I've shut off that address too.

If you're interested in having me do consulting on Subversion, CVS, or open source methods in general, please see here for more information.

Alternate Formats for the 1st Edition

Because I have source files for the 1st edition of the book, I am able to offer it in several formats besides PDF:

If you have a copy of the first printing, you may wish to consult the list of known errors. This list applies only to the treeware, and only for the first printing. The second printing has corrected these bugs. The second and third editions may contain other errors; I am slowly combing through my mailbox to see if anyone has mentioned any.
