I held a workshop on Managing Software Projects with Subversion and Trac. I designed the workshop so that it would be easy for novices to follow, but it also contains some advanced topics. I created a simple eBook for the workshop that walks you through step by step on setting up Subversion and Trac. You can download the Managing Software Projects with Subversion and Trac eBook for free.
