Hi,

I have been tasked with setting up a code repository for my department. We primarily develop in c# using visual studio. Most of our code doesn't need to be protected but access control would be required if all our code was stored here.

The only experience i have with code repositories is SVN which is used by our IT dept.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to which repositories i should look at?


Thanks,

No, Keep SVN, it's the de facto standard
You can look at CVS, but SVN is better

You might also want to take a look at GIT and/or mercurial (HG).  These are "distributed" models as opposed to the centralized model of SVN and CVS before it.  I believe git is the repository system used by Linux kernel developers, and that Mozilla developers are currently using mercurial.
