Subversion was already in the hands of thousands of early adopters, and those users were giving tons of feedback, not only about Subversion, but also about its existing documentation.
The three coauthors of the new book were thus presented with an unusual opportunity.
It is the direct result of the authors' encounters with users.
It began with Ben Collins-Sussman's observation that people were asking the same basic questions over and over on the Subversion mailing lists: what are the standard workflows to use with Subversion?
