Larry O’Brien on DVCS (Distributed Version Control Systems)
SD Times columnist Larry O’Brien has a short piece on distributed version control systems.Â It’s worth a read if you’re curious about all the DVCS hype.
I’m sticking with Subversion for the near future; on Windows, last time I checked, Subversion still had the edge on installation ease and tool support (e.g. TortoiseSVN).Â Supposedly, merging has been improved in Subversion 1.5 and higher.
Still, I’d like to play around with two-level commits (local track when just playing around, development track for when changes are ready for prime time).
