Subject: Managing changes


It is admittedly an alpha version but after our discussion this morning 
on the call about tracking changes I thought I should mention:

> First alpha version of ODFSVN released
> ODFSVN is a toolset that allows you to work and collaborate on ODF
> documents in a subversion repository, i.e. under strict version control.
> ODFSVN is developed in Python as an application independent tool by
> Wichert Akkerman and Ed Holness (of OOoSVN fame) under a grant from
> NLnet foundation. ODFSVN will ultimately allow you to use all features
> of a version control system in your day-to-day workflow: all changes are
> archived along with change notes, making it possible to roll back to
> previous versions, see who made what changes and why, etc. More
> interestingly, it makes it possible to have multiple people sharing
> their changes to a document through a shared repository. That means that
> you can always see all changes from all editors, update your version to
> the latest revision and submit your changes. No matter where you are,
> with or without access to your email, you will always be able to share
> your work. ODFSVN stores all repository information in the ODF metadata,
> which means that you do not need to configure anything on your system:
> all necessary information is already contained in the document. The
> current alpha version provides a working, command-line interface.
> More info on ODFSVN: http://odfsvn.sourceforge.net

Hope everyone is having a great day!
