SVK not SVN
SVK is an extension of the SVN (Apache) runtime and file system to support things such as
- Disconnected Operation
- Decentralized Operation
- Merge Tracking
It's a set or Perl modules that sits on top of the SVN's current Perl bindings to provide these additional features. If you work in a disconnected fashion and may have time away from the respository then this is an ideal way of continuing to version\branch\merge your work and when you reconnect to the repository not have a nightmare time of trying to sync your work back. I do wonder why SVK is not added to SVN as an offical add-on or the work is not merged with SVN. SVK can work with other source control systems so I guess thats the reason why.
