A free version control e-book

I was browsing - (broken link) orablogs and saw a post by Tugdual Grall titled " - (broken link) Free Subversion Online Book. I always have my interest piqued by anything free, especially books or technical stuff. Version control with subversion is an O'Reilly book and is dedicated to this new software that is designed to replace CVS.

Version control is an important part of any software development project; it can also find great use in managing an Oracle database. All configuration files and database and application build scripts for instance should be in a version control system in my opinion. If you do not use version control for your databases you should consider it. A free book like this and free software to match are a great way to get started.
