Definition of Code Repository

By

Definition: In a Version Control System, the term Code Repository just refers to the code that is held there. In a traditional VCS the code repository is held in one place; in PVCS for example it was in a directory tree, while in Subversion it could be in a database or file system. In GIT which is a distributed VCS, a copy is held in each developer's PC and they are kept in synch though a P2P (Peer To Peer) protocol.
