My experience with subversion has been to treat it just like
CVS. Basically "s/cvs/svn/g".
The three exceptions:
(1) The notation for first-time check-out is slightly different.
It uses a funny URL: svn://machine/repository/path
(2) Every time a file is checked in, the version numbers for the
entire repository will increment (not just the affected files).
That takes a little getting to, but it grows on you.
(3) Branches are handled in a kind of sloppy way. A branch is
just a subdirectory with a complete copy of the source tree
(but SVN is smart about storing duplicate files).
If you've used CVS in the past, there's not much else to learn.
