  <p>
    A guide and reference manual for the GNU Arch Revision Control
    system.



</div>

<p>
  Topics are presented in roughly the order they are encountered 
  by a new programmer joining an existing arch-using project.




<p>
  The <b>GNU Arch</b> project itself is used as a &quot;living example&quot;:
  readers are encouraged to make sure that they have an up-to-date
  version of this handbook and to learn-by-doing --- trying out
  the examples on the live GNU project's archives --- as you read.
