This talk gives an introduction to Bazaar (bzr) - the distributed source code revision control system developed by Canonical Inc.
In this session, Lenz will provide an overview about the general concepts of distributed source code revision control and how Bazaar (bzr) fits into this picture. The bzr terminology and most useful commands will be explained as well as examples on topics like:
- Creating a repository
- Adding files
- Editing files and commiting changes
- Plugins and extensions, Interoperability with other SCM systems
Attendees will have a better understanding on how distributed revision control works in principle and how it can be utilized with Bazaar. The basic commands needed to get going will be covered, so users can get familiar with the concept by themselves.
Some basic understanding of source code revision control systems (e.g. CVS, Subversion) is probably required to make the most out of this session and to understand why Bazaar (or any other distributed revision control system) is superior to these.
