A version control system is a stand-alone, fundamental component of a configuration management system that is responsible for the management of individual versions of controlled files/items, providing the ability to manage versions of controlled item versions, typically involving the...
  • Management i.e. creation, update & conditional deletion of item versions
  • Support of version branches
  • Support for the merging of item versions
  • Management i.e. creation, update & conditional deletion of controlled item version labels
Note that the merging of item versions is specific to software configuration control/management systems, the facility is neither required, nor indeed present, in hardware control/management systems.

Note also that the management of item version labels provides the basis for baseline management - in which aggregates of items (& their versions) are managed as enitities in their own right.
