version control

The management of source code and related documents, images and other elements that are part of a software project. Version-control software provides a database (repository) that maintains all revisions made to an application by all the programmers involved in it. It allows developers to revert to a previous version if necessary as well as to review the changes made from one version to another. See configuration management, PVCS and CVS.
