Version Control for Delphi for remote teams

Posted on 2004-09-19

I'd like feedback from Delphi programmers who have used version control systems like CVS.. I am particularly interested in managing offsite coders in remote locations, allowing them to check out some of my libraries and check in the newest version of their work.

Is CVS the best option? Are there others? What about the learning curve?


Any hints, advice, war stories would be appreciated.
I will split points.

CVS is light and good choice. But ... it is quite basic according to functionalities. I would prefer something more advanced, for example Team Coherence:

an enhanced version of CVS is Subversion which I use
it's really great .. I was also thinking of writing an expert for delphi but i'm short on time :)
anyway ..
Server: http://subversion.tigris.org/ (standalone or as a DAV extension to apache)

You are right Ivanov_G,

  It's depend one the size of project, StarTeam used mostly with large teams

Team Coherence is also one of the best, I didn't use it yet, but I haven't heard very well comments about it, I'm using VSS at this time, but I will kick it away soon ;-)
