AW: [avr-gcc-list] CVS or SVN ?!

For CVS it is not essential to have a server. In case that you are having a 
small working group that has access to some common and safe network directory, 
you could use a repository that directly resides on the file system.

For larger working groups, however, i'd not recommend this procedure.

Subversion seems to be better mainly for *really* large projects since it seems 
to be more powerfull and more efficient when dealing with huge repositories.
E.g. gcc itself possibly will switch from cvs to subversion one day since 
working on branches with cvs seems to be quite slow.

In case that you are working on a WOE-XP or WOE-2000 machine, give cvs-tortoise 
a try as an easy-to-use frontend.

Betreff: [avr-gcc-list] CVS or SVN ?!

Hi list,

I have been advised to use CVS when developing programs, but it seems
awkward to set up the server side. While asking around for help, I have
been suggested to give up CVS and use SVN, "subversion", instead, and
that it was meant to supplant CVS.

Now CVS seems difficult enough, so I don't fancy spending time on it,
only to have to change to something else soon after...

I would like your opinions on this... what do everyone use at work ?
Does it make any difference what system I use, as long as I use one !?
Say I find a job in this field, what would my boss be most likely to ask
me to use, CVS or SVN ? Or do the bosses not care, and the engineer can
use and setup whatever system he prefers or is familiar with ?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, work experiences, whatever you see
fit :-)
