TeX Live and Subversion

(This page is about accessing the development sources for TeX Live. Sources for each release are available separately, as large tar files.)

TeX Live uses the Subversion system for source control, to support development by many people simultaneously. Subversion must be used to commit changes, but is not needed (or recommended) simply for read-only access to the development sources. You can also use git-over-svn, but that won't be described here.

Final tip: if you want to use Subversion checkouts but still exclude some directories, such as Master/bin/arch for the architectures you don't use, you can avoid ever doing an update or checkout from the bin, Master, or top-level directories, or use the Subversion 1.5 sparse checkout feature.
