    3 Currently, Trac is tightly integrated with [http://subversion.apache.org Subversion] and [http://git-scm.org Git].
     3Trac uses a version control system to manage products within the team. Typically these products will be software products or releases, but they can be any digital artefact, such as artwork or assets. Currently, Trac is tightly integrated with the [http://subversion.apache.org Subversion] and [http://git-scm.org Git] version control system.

    5 Starting with Trac 0.12, a given TracEnvironment can handle multiple repositories of the same or different versioning systems (see TracRepositoryAdmin). Also, nothing prevents you from setting up multiple Trac Environments on top of the same repository. This can be handy to manage separately different products which share the same code repository.

    9 As mentioned in the TracHistory, Trac was inspired by [http://www.cvstrac.org CVSTrac], a project management and issue tracking system which uses CVS as its versioning system backend. Like Trac, it uses [http://www.sqlite.org SQLite] as its DatabaseBackend, which isn't surprising considering the fact that the author of CVSTrac is also the author of SQLite ^[wiki:VersioningSystemBackend#a1 (1)]^.
