Installing a Version Control System in Solaris 11

Solaris 11 does not have a proprietary version control system. However, you can install and configure an open-source version control system using the Image Package System (IPS) repository as packages.

For development environments, Solaris 11 provides some of these open-source version control systems. The table below lists the IPS packages associated with these open-source version control systems.
