I had wanted to spare the list from this but I goofed so now I may as  
well copy here what I wrote off list to Watson:

A few months ago I had already spent some time on the SVN book but  
most of it went over my head. Versions wants me to start right now  
but doesn't give me any idea of what I would be getting into. (In  
fact I emailed them an hour ago about this.)

When I set up FreeMathTexts.org, I was about at the same stage but  
there I was able to figure out that KompoZer would write the HTML for  
me. So I was able to experiment on my own machine. Then I was able to  
figure out that Cyberduck would upload it for me. But it took me a  
couple of weeks and a friend to gather the courage to do so. (And I  
didn't realize until much later that KompoZer would have "published"  
it too. Etc)

What I need to read about is how I can set up a repository on my own  
machine to figure things out. I don't even know if it is feasible.  
But, if so, then, hopefully, I would later move the repository to  
FreeMathTexts.org but right now I don't want to risk messing it up!

Well, if you have reading suggestions, I would appreciate them a lot.

Grateful regards
