are expanding your choices to things like SVN and Perforce, then CVSNT (free,
GPL, Linux/Unix/Windows/etc) may be worth considering. CVSNT also has a
commercial variant if you need support (CVS Suite).
Personally I think that choices of SCM ought to be made
on business benefit, not on technical bullet points. So how is
your organisation hoping to benefit from SCM? Eg: Quality, Cost, Market
Diferentiation etc? Then look at the process that wil help you achieve
that result, then look at the tools that support that
Upgrading to CVS 1.12, CVSNT 2.5, SVN or Perforce is
not a "magic bullet" - you'll most likely end up with the same situation you
have today without any additional business benefit and having spent a whole lot
of somebody's time.
the CVSNT project we've tried to focus on features that do provide a business
benefit, such as Audit, change sets, mergepoints (tracking when / where
merges were made), and various Integrations: email, shadow, bugzilla,
SCCI, etc. CVSNT also supports atomic checkout, rename, "hot
standby" etc etc. CVSNT 2.6 is just starting test cycle and improves
rename, tagging etc.
What is cost/risks/benefit of
moving CVS server (on Red Hat Linux 7.3) from version 1.11.1p1 to version
1.11.21 or version 1.12.13?
Of course I'm considering moving to
a more recent version of Linux :-)
I have some developers who
are strongly encouraging me to migrate from CVS to Subversion.
Other developers strongly suggest that we migrate from CVS to
Has anyone here moved from CVS to Subversion and
regretted it and moved back to CVS?
We are eager to move to an
atomic commit functionality.
We are also eager to move to a
versioned directory functionality to facilitate code
There are those who belief that branching and
merging are easier/more intuitive with Perforce and/or Subversion as compared
