About Source Control

Source control is a process where you store a copy of your project on a server, allowing you to “check in” and “check out” files and keep your local changes in sync with the server version for the project, and with changes from other writers. Source control is even useful for single authors because it provides a means for maintaining a constant backup of all project files.
