Subject Re: Versioning
Date Tue, 29 Mar 2011 18:51:46 GMT
I was actually looking for a doc/html store that could be used to store
frequent weekly updates where 1% of most files will change.  This would
result in 52 copies of each file a year.  I think I will try Git or
Subversion for now.

Thanks for the help,
-Ryan
