Basics: the Repository (2)

  • The repository remembers every change to every file and even additions and deletions in the directory tree.
  • When a client reads from the repository, normally it only sees the latest version of the filesytem;
  • but client can also view previous states of the filesystem.
    • What did this directory contain last Wednesday?
    • Who was the last person to change this file?
    • What changes did Laurie make to this file?
    • Give me the version of my code that worked yesterday.
