I. A FEW POINTERS

  For an overview of the Subversion project, visit

 https://subversion.apache.org/

Once you have a Subversion client you can get the latest version of the code with the command:

 $ svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk subversion

II. DOCUMENTATION

  The main documentation is the Subversion Book - an on-line version
  can be found at:

 http://svnbook.red-bean.com/

It is written in DocBook XML, and the sources can be found at:

 https://svn.code.sf.net/p/svnbook/source/trunk/

If you wish to build the documentation from source, read the en/README file within the book source.

III. PARTICIPATING IN THE SUBVERSION COMMUNITY

  First, read https://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/
  It describes Subversion coding and log message standards, as well
  as how to join discussion lists.

Talk on IRC with developers: irc.freenode.net, channel #svn-dev.

Read the FAQ: https://subversion.apache.org/faq.html

IV. QUICKSTART GUIDE

  See the final section of the first chapter of the Subversion Book.

V. CONVERTING FROM CVS

  If you're a CVS user trying to move your CVS history over to
  Subversion, then be sure to visit the 'cvs2svn' project:

 https://github.com/mhagger/cvs2svn

If you are running a Linux or BSD-based system, your distribution might have a cvs2svn package.

If cvs2svn doesn't meet your needs, you might try refinecvs written by Lev Serebryakov:

http://lev.serebryakov.spb.ru/refinecvs/

Please note that cvs2svn and refinecvs are separate projects from Subversion. If you have problems or are confused, contact the authors, not the Subversion lists.

Finally, be sure to see Appendix B in the Subversion Book. It contains a very quick overview of the major differences between CVS and Subversion.
