An aspect of primary significance in Integrated Circuit (IC) design is configuration management of design data, i.e., the task of keeping a project comprising a multiplicity of revisions well organized. Apache's subversion (r) is a software tool that can facilitate this task. It manages revisions of documentation, source code, and a wide variety of files, and it automates storing and retrieving revisions. Unfortunately, subversion (r) provides insufficient support for IC projects consisting of large numbers of managed items.
