The R sources themselves are maintained in Subversion, and it works
well. If you want to use Subversion, I recommend reading the Subversion
book, available online at svnbook.com, or on paper at a bookstore.
The build scripts for packages also recognize and work around the
metadata for a few other version control systems: CVS (which R used to
use, I like Subversion better), arch, git, and bzr. I've never tried
any of the latter three.
