svnversion - Produce a compact version number for a working copy.

Subversion is a version control system, which allows you to keep old
versions of files and directories (usually source code), keep a log of
who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like CVS, RCS or SCCS. Sub-
version keeps a single copy of the master sources. This copy is called
the source ‘‘repository’’; it contains all the information to permit
extracting previous versions of those files at any time.
