AccuRev is a software configuration management (SCM) system, designed for use by a team of people who are developing a set of files. For maximum productivity, the team’s members must be able to work independently of each other. Accordingly, each user has their own private copy of the version-controlled files. The private copies are stored on the user’s own machine, in a directory tree called a workspace. Changes users make to their private copy are shared with other users via a public data area called a stream.
