\section1 Setting Up Version Control Systems
Qt Creator uses the version control system's command line clients to access
your repositories. To set up the version control system's command line
clients to access your repositories, make sure that the command line clients
your repositories. To allow access, make sure that the command line clients
can be located using the \c{PATH} environment variable or specify the path to
the command line client executables, in the settings pages shown by
\gui{Tools} > \gui{Options...}.
the command line client executables in \gui{Tools} > \gui{Options...} >
\gui {Version Control}.
After you set up the version control system, use the command line to check
that everything works (for example, use the status command). If no issues arise,
you should be ready to use the system also from Qt Creator.
\section1 Setting Up Common Options

\section2 Viewing Versioning History and Change Details
Display the versioning history of a file by selecting \gui{Log}
(for \bold{git}) or \gui{Filelog}(for \bold{Perforce} and
\bold{Subversion}). Typically, the log output contains the date, the commit
(for Git and Mercurial) or \gui{Filelog} (for CVS, Perforce, and
Subversion). Typically, the log output contains the date, the commit
message, and a change or revision identifier. Click on the identifier to
display a description of the change including the diff.
Right-clicking on an identifier brings up a context menu that lets you
show annotation views of previous versions (see \l{Annotating Files}).

\section2 Reverting Changes
To discard local changes to a file or project, use the \gui Revert
function or the \gui {Undo Changes/Undo Repository Changes} function
(for Git). The changes discarded depend on the version control system.
For example, in Perforce, select \gui{Revert File/Revert Project}
to discard changes made to open files, reverting them to the
revisions last synchronized from the repository. Select
\gui{Revert Unchanged} to revert files if their contents or file
type have not changed after they were opened for editing.
