Jump ahead of the masses staying on Subversion, and increase your team's productivity, debugging effectiveness, flexibility in cutting releases, and repository and connectivity redundancy (at $0 cost).Understand how distributed version control systems (DVCSes) are game-changers and pick up the lingo that will become standard in the next few years.
