Subject RE: what source code control system?
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2003 18:17:15 GMT
Despite the fact that it is widely used, the list of problems with CVS is
long and distinguished.  Since you can't use SourceSafe, I would recommend
that you look at Subversion (  Subversion is
self-hosting, works with database and apache, has an API, and there is a GUI
interface (

Subversion uses WebDAV, and there is even a Wiki using Subversion.

If you were in a corporate environment, perhaps Subversion might not be
ready for you (but then again, you could afford SourceSafe), but in your
environment you might like the possibilities in Subversion.  There is always
CVS if you need it, and don't mind the problems (like the inability to
rename something).
