I can get you to many places you want to be.
But you have to give me a pull or push when I meet T.

People do not write on me, unless I am accompanied by D.
In that case, my name is often written together with E.

Most of my kind cannot swim.
But when I join P, we shall live happily in a stream.

If you want to work with me, all you need is a key.
But when I am following S, you may want to get rid of me.

What am I?

CAR

is the answer. Add T and you get:

CART

which is pushed or pulled. Add D and you get:

CARD

which people write on. If you are writing one of those you likely

CARE

about the person.

CARP

swim. You want to get rid of a

SCAR.

SVN

I can get you to many places you want to be.

You can Browse all the directories ie. you can go anywhere

But you have to give me a pull or push when I meet T.

When Users Commit the changes in Trunk you need to Pull or Push New changes in Trunk

People do not write on me, unless I am accompanied by D.

We can't Commit Until we write the complete Description of the changes.

In that case, my name is often written together with E.

If changes commited then it will be written by svn:Explaination

Most of my kind cannot swim.

Many user who doesn't have updated copy can't commit.

But when I join P, we shall live happily in a stream.

If we have Present copy then can commit easily(join new data with Present copy will leave Happily).

If you want to work with me, all you need is a key.

We Need a Password for Using it / or Version Number.

But when I am following S, you may want to get rid of me.

  • $\begingroup$ This is not right => "We can't Commit Until we write the complete Description of the changes." I have been using SVN... $\endgroup$ – Nai Nov 18 '15 at 9:42

You are a:

CAR

I can get you to many places you want to be.

Speaks for itself

But you have to give me a pull or push when I meet T.

CAR - T

People do not write on me, unless I am accompanied by D.

CAR - D

In that case, my name is often written together with E.

CAR - E?

Most of my kind cannot swim. But when I join P, we shall live happily in a stream.

CAR - P

If you want to work with me, all you need is a key.

a CAR KEY is needed to operate it

But when I am following S, you may want to get rid of me.

S - CAR
