    Unanswered: Coordinating source code versions

    We have a small team of developers (2-3) and we have a production server and a development server. Both run IIS and SQL server.

    I have been reading about this:
    Concurrent Versions System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    and would like to install something that will lock out / manage the revisions of our ASP code. We usually do changes to the ASP code on the development server and when it works, copy to the production server. Both enviroments are functionally equivalent.

    All we've been doing it drag and drop asp files to delploy so this is a big jump. Any reccomendations?

    if you are in the microsoft stable why not use the microsoft souce code archive: sourcesafe
    failing that you are then into the likes of CVS and all its clones
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    yes i am looking at CVS savanna right now.. i did not know about sourcesafe.. i will google now. thanks!

    was looking for a free version with GUI.. CVS looks command prompt based - that would be clumsy to implement

    I'd steer clear of Source Safe. It is historically useless for branching and merging. It's also a pain in the ass to have more than one person work on the same code at the same time.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    yes I am steering clear of it. Can you reccomend something simple and GUI? CVS looks command line driven

    I remember seeing some CVS plugins for studio. Don't quote me on it, but I think it's out there somewhere.
